Flash Photography and Studio Lighting
Workshop For Fraser Valley
Flash Photography or strobe is totally different from constant light photography. You need to understand the nature of Flash or strobe light first and then you will enjoy using your flash or strobe. Flash photography can be very creative or completely boring!
In this workshop first you will learn the nature of strobes, different types of flashes, and all technical terms of flash photography including High Speed Synch and Hyper Speed Synch.
In second part you will learn how to use your flash as “Fill Light” in combination with ambient light, how to over ride the ambient light, and what TTL can do and what it can not.
Then in the third session you will experiment with all different types of Studio Light Modifiers, Studio set ups using external flashes, wireless flash photography, Off camera TTL photography, Off camera Non TTL settings, Etc.
