This workshop specifically illustrates and teaches students to understand flash, how and why it works, both on and off the camera. Specifically, this class is geared at both students that are just starting out with flash, as well as those that have been using flash, but want to learn how to use it more effectively on the camera. Our workshop will emphasize how to best use the flash on-camera. The workshop will also cover light modifiers, gels and an in-depth description of how to make it work, including internal remote triggering. Speedlight photography is integral to creating interesting and dynamic photography. Any brand-flash is welcomed and can be discussed.
