MaS Member Event - Tips and tricks with your on camera flash



When properly used your on camera flash can be an absolutely outstanding tool get some amazing photographs. Unfortunately for many people when the flash pops up they start getting washed out nasty photos with dark backgrounds and people with shiny foreheads and red eyes. This informative hands on member event will tell you tips and tricks to get amazing results with your pop up flash (and a little bit about your speedlights for those who don't have pop up flashes).

Topics we will discuss include

Using your pop up flash as a fill flash during the day
Reducing red eye and harsh spots
Flash compensation
balancing your pop up flash
Some third party tools that can really affect your flash
And more!

While we aren't going to full cover it, we will also talk about how your flash can possibly be a wireless trigger for your flash system (Canon and Nikon users). This can open a world of opportunity for a lot of people.

This event is free for all MAS members. Not a member? It's just $25 for the year and you get to be a part of a lot of amazing member only events.

Update [masked])

Here's a fun little D.I.Y. Flash diffuser we are using during the presentation.  Print it off at home, cut it out, and use it for neat portraits and more!

      Lol Nah. I wanted to setup something for members that would be very practical and helpful that other people would actually charge for. On camera flash is going to be fun to talk about.
