Just in time for your Winter photography.

Do you hate using flash for taking photos?

Flash Photography is totally different from constant light photography, that is why many new photographers treat the flash photography as constant light photography. That is why they hate the look of the flash in their photos!

Do you know that you can control the output of your camera flash to blend the ambient and flash light very precisely?

“Flash photography can be very creative, when you know how to use the power of your flash or strobe.”

This is usually my opening sentence for Flash Photography workshops.

Most of us don’t take many pictures during winter time. Why is that? Is it because it is cold and wet? Yes that’s partially true. But usually it is because there is not enough daylight. Now imagine you can have daylight under your control not only to use at any given time but also are able to control the amount of light that you need.

We’re excited to offer a comprehensive solution to shooting in the shorter daylight winter season.
