Speedlights are a powerful tool with such great possibilities that you can use on and off the camera. Unfortunately, they can be a finicky tool, difficult to understand.
But they don’t need to be! With a little bit of know-how, you can create excellent portraits ANYWHERE using your speedlight!
In this Creating Portraits with Speedlights Session, we’ll discuss, demonstrate, and then practice with models how to set up a great portrait anywhere using the simplest of tools and methods. In this workshop, we will specifically be working with speedlights/flash off the camera using triggers.
Most importantly, attendees will be guiding the setup (and take down) of all the gear. Attendees are also encouraged to bring their own gear, but we will begin with gear that anyone can use, including:

-A Variety of brands of Speedlights
-Off-Camera Triggers
-Softboxes, Reflectors, and other Diffusers
