Hands On Speedlighting (for newbies and not so newbies)
The March meeting will be a continuation of our lighting/speedlight/strobe discussions. It will be a real time demo of various lighting equipment options, setup of the lighting equipment, and zeroing in everything for best results. The emphasis will be on fast, easy, and inexpensive! If you are new to speedlighting or lighting in general, you'll find a wealth of information on what you can do to create the lighting you want whether from scratch or "fixing" the existing lighting that you are stuck with. We'll cover the concepts of lighting including: key light, fill light, rim light, and background light, harshness/softness of light based on apparent size, distance, intensity, user control of ETTL and manual settings on camera and speedlight, lighting gear available to you including source, cost, reliability, and modifiers, learn the easy, low cost methods of making light do what you want! Please be on time ! There is a ton of material to cover and we only have from 6:30 until 7:45. This is for all levels of experience and gear. Newbies can get plenty of info to use for their shopping and the experienced will learn some tricks they can add to their repertoire. Best, Kurt
