How To Take The Perfect Portrait, Indoors and Outdoors

Using a hot shoe mounted speed light, we will review the techniques to create beautiful portraits indoors and outside. Learn how to use your flash! We will discuss the role of aperture and shutter speed to control the mix of ambient light and flash, how to find the best light outdoors, and how to use a flash modifier for perfect indoor shots.

You will need a DSLR camera and a hot shoe mounted flash. We also recommend purchase of a Joe Demb Photojournalist Flip-It! flash modifier. You can order one from Amazon, B&H, or from the company at If you don't have this part, you can still learn what you need to know.
