Description

Join Foto Care and Erik Valind for the Mastering Mirrorless and Flash Photography Workshop.

Mirrorless cameras have revolutionized the speed and ease at which we shoot on-location. The same can be said for advanced flash technologies like TTL and HSS. Combining these new technologies gives photographers the perfect tool set to create impactful portraits practically anywhere! And in this workshop you’ll learn everything you need to know to up your portrait photography game. After an informative presentation at Foto Care we will meet up with some professional models and head out to shoot on the streets of NYC. With Erik's guidance you’ll do the shooting while learning along with the way. We’ll provide the lighting, location and subjects, you just bring your camera and memory cards to leave with your files. No tripods will be allowed during this workshop.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • How to setup your camera to create perfect portraits on the fly

  • How to use strobe lights to both create a natural looking image or epic images that pop

  • Experience the portability and high speed sync of the Elinchrom ELB 500 TTL

  • How to select the right location, color and composition to make your images unique

Please let us know what camera will you be shooting with when you register for this workshop. We will have available some Fujifilm X-Series camera bodies and lenses. These loaners will require two forms of ID (Driver's license and credit card) and will be available on a First Come, First Serve basis.
