Flash Photography workshop Fraser Valley
“ 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 picture during winter time! Why is that? Is it because it is cold and wet? No, because there is not enough day light! Now imagine that you can have daylight under your control not only to use it at any given time but also controlling the amount of daylight that you need! Is it not something that all photographers wish for?
Come and join us for this three parts 12 hour workshop to learn more about strobes and flash photography:
