By learning to take your flash off camera many creative and beautiful effects become available to you as a photographer.

Join Audrey Andersen and other SPS Mentors as they discuss and illustrate techniques of "Off-Camera Flash ".

Off camera flash is a creative lighting technique involving the off-camera placement of your flash unit ( hot shoe flash), portable speed-lights, strobes or continuous lights. With lighting placed off camera, the photographer can have control over the direction and intensity of the light. The technique is invaluable when shooting in low light situations, bright midday sunlight, or shooting in sunset and sunrise. It’s especially useful in portraiture but can be used in many scenarios including weddings, flowers, tabletop, product, food, receptions, events and more.

While front-facing flash (coming directly from your camera’s hotshoe) can be effective, it can also lead to your subject looking flat and one-dimensional. By moving your flash off-camera so its light bathes your subject at an angle you can create portraits with a much greater sense of depth.

Join us for a fun filled and informative evening to learn about this capability.

The Learnshop will include a short presentation followed by "hands on stations" so please feel free to bring your camera.
Remember, our October Theme is "Backlighting" and this Learnshop will help in capturing an ideal image to enter.


SPS Monthly Meetings (first Friday of each month) are for its members and guests.

The Learnshops (fourth Tuesday of each month) are intended for members, but again, we welcome visitors. If you attend regularly, we ask that you help support the club (which pays for the rental of the facilities, supplies, and equipment) by becoming a member!!!
