Off Camera Flash Seminar – September

Final plans are underway for this 5 hour hands on seminar. I will be working in conjunction with Master Photographer Terry Blain who will be offering tips on posing and producing competition worthy images. The seminar will be held at her studio in Carlisle, PA.FS_Sample_9962_fs

This workshop is for advanced shooters and professional photographers alike. It will likely be limited to 6 to 8 people to make it practical for all to shoot.Techniques that will be addressed are for using small portable flash units from cobra style (on-camera hot shoe) units to units such as the Q-flash/Godox units with an external battery. Make images with one or two flashes and ambient light by learning to control the balance between ambient and flash.

You will earn how to control image contrast and mood. You will learn how to make more consistent exposures. You will learn to understand good light vs bad light. You will learn that this is both easy to do and a fast way to work.

If you are planning to buy flash equipment I suggest you attend this seminar first as you may change your mind about what you need and save a lot of money. More information will come very soon as final arrangements are made.

Light and On Camera Flash

A reminder to those of you local to Central PA that I will be presenting a program on lighting and electronic flash next Monday, September 15th, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The meeting is at the Country Meadows Retirement Community, 451 Sand Hill Rd. Hershey, PA 17033. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The program will discuss some fundamental concepts of light and relate them to flash photography. How to use on camera flash effectively is a difficult concept for many and I will discuss the equipment needed and how to best use it. Topics will include TTL control by the camera and the use of manual flash. I will suggest flash equipment for first time buyers and be open to questions.Liam_Kathy_4mo_0118

If time permits and there is interest I will also discuss off camera flash. I will show how I use flash in both my professional and my personal photography. While I cannot know how your specific camera and flash work together I suggest you bring your flash and manual along to help you resolve problems based on the information. Note taking is encouraged. Anyone considering their first flash purchase are particularly encouraged to attend.

See you there.
