Quoc Huy will be running this session on Speedlites.

Many of you may know Huy's work as he has been published in multiple magazines from Practical Photography to Eye Spy magazine where he very recently had the cover spread. Huy is a portrait photography expert and with his attention to light, detail, composition and skill his portraits take on a new dimension. Lighting is key to Huy's work and if you haven't seen what he does take a look at www.qhphotography.com or www.quoc-huy.com. Huy is very talented in the use of Speedlites and all types of flash and what you can't learn from him just isn't worth knowing.

So if you're ready to get to grips with your Speedlite and you're looking to learn to use flash both on and off the camera this FotoGym is designed for you.
