Flash Photography workshop 

Vancouver! We have some great classes coming your way! September 22nd is our Flash Photography techniques class. This is suitable for intermediate to advanced users who want to get the most of their external flash and learn how to set up a small studio.

“ Flash photography can be very creative, if you know how to use the power of your flash or strobe.” This is usually my opening sentence for Flash Photography and studio lighting workshops. And it is true! Most of us do not want to take any pictures during the winter time! Why is that? Is it because it is cold and wet? No, it is because there is not enough day light! Now imagine that you can have daylight under your control; not only can you make use of it at any given time, but you can also decide just much daylight that you need! Is this not something that all photographers wish for?

 What is SLOW SHUTTER Sync?

Slow Shutter Sync is one of the most artistic techniques in Flash photography. You slow down your shutter speed to capture the motion blur and use the flash to freeze the subject. It is very easy to apply when you learn the technique. Here is a sample:
