Intro to Off-Camera Flash
Introduction to Off-Camera Flash
In this hands-on class we will be taking the on-camera flash… off of the camera. On-camera flashes, or otherwise known as a speedlights, are flashes that directly connect to your camera and can also be used off the camera to create a better look for your flash photography. In this three-hour class we will be working with a model to take amazing portraits using speedlights. We will provide everything but the camera, so bring your dslr or mirrorless camera and let’s make some portraits.
• Mounting a speedlight on a stand
• Connecting your camera to the flash
• Using modifiers (umbrellas, softboxes,etc) to change the light quality
• Positioning the light for better portraits
• Using multiple speedlights to make a portrait
• Using gels to change the color of the light
