Flash Photography Workshop

Use of on and off camera flash to create both natural and dramatic portrait shots is the focus of our Flash Photography Course in London. We cover the basics and then go on to create professional lighting, both inside and outside. Topics covered will include:

– On camera flash
– Flash settings, including zoom, TTL and manual
– Camera settings with flash – shutter speed, aperture, ISO and sync speed
– Fill flash
– Balancing ambient light with flash
– Bouncing flash
– Off camera flash
– Positioning lights
– Use of light stands, reflectors, diffusers and umbrellas
– Adding interest to shots using flash
– Lighting the background
– Combining movement with flash

On this lighting course, we work with a model, and visit three different locations, two outside and one inside, to create a set of professional portraits that would grace any portfolio.

You will need a digital SLR with manual mode, and you will need your own dedicated flash unit and a way to trigger it off camera. Please contact us if you have any questions about this. This is a hands on, fairly intense day, you will be on your feet most of the time.
