Our speedlight workshop is set in the wonderful Caribou Rooms in the centre of Hove, just a short walk from the seafront. We will start in the characterful basement bar area. This is cut off from the natural light from outside so makes a great place to see the affects of just the speedlights and mimics the conditions many wedding photographers face through the event.
This first section of the day we will cover the technical aspects of flash photography with these versatile speedlights. Using them on camera, going through what the modes mean and leading up to taking them off camera. I will go into the manufacturer specific traits of your flashguns, using my personal experience with Nikon flash and my time working for Sony and Canon, so whatever brand you use this course will be useful.
The second half of the day we will be creating some more complex set-ups and going through balancing daylight and flash before heading outside to take a walk and create some street style fashion images, where I will show you how to use High Speed Sync to make the best of any situation. Some examples of flash use in different situations below.
Throughout the day, Jade Lyon will be on hand offering tips and pointers with both the lighting, composition and model direction.
This workshop is suitable to anyone wanting to get into off camera flash regardless of your genre of photography, be it weddings, fashion or narrative.
We will be outside for part of the day, so please bare that in mind when planning to come, we won't be able to control the weather!
Which Course Next? If you've not done it before, The Speedlight - Advanced Workshop is a great next step, taking you into using multiple lights more in depth about high speed sync and colour correcting the flashes.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
