Thursdays November 8th & 15th, 6-8pm • Hunt’s Photo, Melrose
This class is all about Taking your Speedlight Off-Camera!
Recommended prerequisite: Beginner Photography knowledge
Instructor: Paul Nelson
Class Level: Basic to Beyond Basic
Speedlights have become a versatile tool in the photographer’s camera bag. They have never been more useful for different types of photography than they are today. With accessories available to transform speedlights into studio lighting, the possibilities are limitless while remaining extremely compact.
This course specifically focuses on using flash OFF-camera with light modifiers and gives a more hands-on opportunity to use flash. The workshop will cover light modifiers, gels and an in-depth description of how to make it work, including external remote triggering.
You can bring your flashes, triggers and light modifiers to this workshop, or you can come without any of those things! We will work with multiple options and explain how to make all these things to work together with practical, hands-on application.
