What you'll learn in this lighting class:

If you feel confident with a camera but less so with a flash and would like to master portable lights, this class is for you. The goal of this six-week class is to learn how to use a flash so well that the outcome looks like beautiful ambient light. The technology today makes this easier than ever before.

Students will work in various lighting situations, using the flash as both the main source of light and as a fill light. Each week, there will be lectures and demonstrations which include how to use a flash in both TTL and manual mode, on camera and off, how to determine exposure, how to control the light output of the flash, how to diffuse the flash, and how and why to include or exclude ambient light. Demonstrations using stands and umbrellas will be given showing bounce modes and multiple strobe use. Students will be given assignments each week to complete and bring in to the next class. This class is guaranteed to make you a master of your flash.

Please bring camera/lens, flash unit(s), manuals, memory cards, extra batteries (for camera and flash) and a jump drive (for transferring your images for critique).Please bring plenty of extra batteries for your flash units.

Optional: TTL cord or TTL wireless transmitters, diffuser (such as the Omni Bounce, Gary Fong, Honl Diffusers.)
