THE WORKSHOP WILL COVER:
A photo discussion.
This is the initial speed dating session :-) We will introduce ourselves and go through examples of off camera flash photography and discussing how the images was lit and getting a sense of what can be done. If there are images you LOVE, send them to me so i can add them to the discussion slideshow.
The theory part.
The hard part comes next where we will go through the theory behind this "Off camera flash" thing.
- The relationship between the flash, ISO, shutter speed and aperture and how they need to play nice in order to get the results you want.
- How to balance ambient light and your flash
- Finding the best environment for your shot
- And if you cannot find it - how to shoot outside at midday (Eish...)
Speedlights, triggers, light modifiers - the vast array of options is enough to give you a migraine. And everyone who starts using off camera flash has a cupboard full of gear that they bought along the way only to find it was not the right gear.
I will go through the options and show you what works and why and save you thousands. So this will pay for the workshop straight away :-).
Practical shoot (Yay)
Once we have gone through the theory part, we will go out and implement those skills on a practical shoot with a model. All participants will practice the recipe and shoot until they are happy with the results. Only then will we move to the next setup and go through it all over again. Practice makes perfect.
Once we are done, we will regroup and every participant will provide 1 image to the final discussion of the day. This is a great way to see everyone's images and go over what we learn't.
A night shoot, double yay!
As the shoot is in the afternoon, we will get some night shots when the sun sets.
These night shots can be extremely dramatic and you can really have fun with them.
This is going to be great!
