Off Camera Flash photography
After last years "Off-camera flash photography" fotogym by Huy and friends, a lot of the LPMG members have asked for a second one as the places available at the origional workshop was limited. These members of the London Strobist group showed us what can be achieved by the use of small portable flash used off-camera.

This year, to answer to your request for another session, the group is going to reiterate with an "Off-camera flash photography" seminar during the annual workshop. They will guide you around the basis of the off-camera flash photography and help you to understand and use a flash gun to its best making it your own portable and available light to complement/replace natural light whenever needed. Learn to use this great piece of gear (that is often used improperly) to produce a range of shots which can both mimic natural light and offer you a range of creative effects. This talk will show you a variety of methods anyone can use in the home/studio or on location to produce stunning results. Also by utilising items found at home to build simple accessories which will aid you in the quest for the perfect image. The seminar will be illustrated by a live demo featuring different lighting scenarios.
