Thank you very much for registering for ViewFinder's "Speedlights 101 with Matt Anderson" workshop on Saturday July 20th. Here is some information to help you prepare and get the most out of the workshop.
Time/Schedule: Our course will begin promptly at 10:00 and will end at 17:30, taking a break for lunch at about 12:15.
Location: Please be aware that the ViewFinder Center for Photography is in Winterthur at the following address: Else Züblin-Strasse 115, 8404 Winterthur. A map can be found on this page which will help you locate our building. If you're coming into Winterthur by train (via Zurich), we recommend that you take the S12 (direction: Seuzach) to the Oberwinterthur train station. Our studio is just a 5 minute walk from the station.
Lunch Break: We have a reservation for the group at Gerry's Italian Restaurant (across the street from Viewfinder) at 12:15 and you are very welcome to join us there for lunch. If you have special dietary needs, then please feel free to bring your own lunch with you.
Course Format: We will begin by working on a foundational understanding of flash settings and flash exposure. We'll spend the morning in the classroom as we absorb the necessary theoretical information (along with frequent, short practical experiments). In the afternoon we'll put our new knowledge to work - and each student will have the opportunity to experiment with flash lighting technique. Weather permitting, we'll do some outdoor shooting near the studio - combining outdoor light with the light from our small strobes. If the weather is no good, then we may choose to shoot in the studio. Please check the weather forecast ahead of time and dress comfortably.
Equipment: You are responsible for bringing your own camera, lense(s) and memory card. If you already own a flash - bring that as well. We will have a handful of flashes, light stands, modifiers, and triggering devices on hand for students to work with. Please be sure to charge your batteries before the course and completely clear off your memory cards. We're sure you take great vacation photos, but it's a hassle to sort through your old images during picture review.
Course materials: We will provide each participant with a handout that highlights the essential points which we cover in the course. You can take notes on the handout if you wish, or bring a notepad.
Thanks again for your registration. We look forward to seeing you on the 20th of July!
