Event description

Description

In Part 2 of this Summer Strobe Series we will be bringing out the big guns! When it comes to outdoor photography, overpowering the sun, and capturing moving subjects like athletes, nothing beats the power the performance of big flashes. Erik and his assistants will have multiple lighting setups built outside on location and will walk you through modifying your light to match the mood of your desired shot, how to control ambient light and create your own dramatic flare, plus how to freeze motion with your flash.

Big Flash Workshop: $75
Date: Monday, 8/27 | 5-8pm
Sponsored by Broncolor

We will start with an informative presentation at Foto Care, attendees will break into small groups and with Erik's guidance will be setup to experiment with multiple lighting set-ups and light modifiers. Then we will leave Foto Care to meet up with some professional models and head out into Penn South Playground to learn more advanced large flash techniques that help you find the right exposure every time, empower you to get those beautiful blurry backgrounds, and to even compete with the sun on a bright day.

What to expect in this workshop:

Using powerful 800ws Monolights from Broncolor we’ll also cover the following advanced techniques:

  • Lighting fast flash durations for tack sharp portraits

  • Breaking the sync barrier with Bron HS for shutter speeds up to 1/8000 sec

  • Speed Mode explained in depth

  • And one of Erik's “secret” techniques using Alternate Mode for incredible recycle times...

You’ll walk away from this workshop with a better understanding of just how far big flash technology has come in 2018. It will empower you to tame the brightest outdoor environments and freeze the fastest subjects, while being able to still get those nice blurry backgrounds, and shooting your camera as fast it can go.

We're bringing the lights, the models and the know-how, you just bring your camera gear and memory cards!
