Take your speedlight (the accessory external flash) off the camera’s hot shoe, and create unique and memorable portraits – deliberately place highlights and shadows to shape the subject’s face!
Lose your “fear” of flash and gain the confidence to direct the flash, manually control its power, and use simple light modifiers.
Change the quality of the flash from “harsh” to “soft” by spreading its light!
Build basic lighting concepts and skills, while making interesting portraits of the actors and actresses we’ll invite.
Learn to balance the Ambient light with the Speedlight to dim the environment or freeze time, modify the mood and color of the scene, and make images that never look “flash”!
All done with only one speedlight, one pop-up diffuser or reflector, and a cable or radio trigger to fire your off-camera flash!
We’ll meet at 11:00AM in the classroom, and finish at 4:00PM
