Do you ever find you're out taking photos and could use a little more light on your subject? Are you ready to start using flash in your images? Want to play around with a Speedlight before purchasing one? Then this workshop is for you!

This special workshop teaches students how to add flash lighting to their photographs, opening up a world of creative possibilities. It's perfect for someone who wants to get more comfortable using external flash or wants to try it out before committing to one of their own.

Topics include Speedlight operation, flash exposure, inverse square law, balancing flash with ambient light, bounce flash and avoiding pitfalls such as that overexposed washed out “flash” look. The workshop will culminate in an in-class exercise mixing flash and ambient lighting to produce really cool dynamic motion portraits.

High School Students Welcome
