January 10, 2012 - Workshop: Introduction to Portable Flash - Effective Use of Speed Lights for Better Photography with Jim Jenkins.

This will be a hands-on workshop for beginner and intermediate users alike. We will focus on a single flash unit as a creative tool to enhance your skills as a photographer shooting in daylight, indoors and at night. We will focus on using a single on-camera portable flash (speed light) and briefly introduce multiple flash units. Examples and demonstration will be provided as well as practical exercises that will be instructor lead in small groups. We will cover how to use bounce flash, light modifiers, flash modes, control exposure, color correction and more.

Bring your camera, flash and manuals for each. Optionally, some foam core sheets or mat sheet scraps (white and/or black) to use as reflectors/flags and a subject such as a small or medium size object you would like to photograph.
