David Boyd will briefly review what he covered in his flash presentation in October. We will then have hands on time to demonstrate and to work with various types of flash accessories and settings.
You may have heard that flash is too hard to use, too complicated, and that it makes photos look washed out and artificial. In this meetup, we're going to look at how and when to use a flash, demonstrate that settings are a lot simpler than they seem and prove that a flash can enhance a photograph, while making it look like natural light. We will look at when a flash can improve a photograph and when a flash should not be used. Most of the meetup will be hands on and we will look at diffusers, reflectors, better beamers, and other, inexpensive devices. Bring your camera and flash. If you don’t have one, we will have some to share.
You can submit photos from a recent meetup, related to the monthly meeting topic or any other photograph you want critiqued. Limit: three photos per member. (You can bring a couple more, in case we have more time to view photographs)
PS: everyone is encouraged to share a photograph. Please bring it on a flash drive to the meeting. It is by sharing our work and getting constructive criticism that we grow as photographers... :)
See you there...
The leadership team.
