Portable Flash Intensive Workshop


Day 1: Learn to understand and use your flash in this one-day hands-on intensive workshop


Using flash effectively requires a solid understanding of flash principles like synchronization, exposure and quality controls. Use this session to get comfortable with your flash and practice using it both on and off the camera in both indoor and outdoor situations. Have a go at using a variety of single-light setups to explore your lighting quality in a variety of lighting situations.

This intensive workshop aims to lift your flash confidence to be able to handle any lighting situation. The workshop includes practical sessions and worksheets so you can record your settings and compare your results. This session is suitable for any photographer that wants to develop their confidence using portable flash style lighting. We will presume you already have a grasp on manual settings on your camera, and your camera has the ability to fire external portable flash units.

Day 2: Hands-on intensive workshop takes the basics to the next level

We will use multiple-flash setups and we will also explore a variety of styles in managing available light with your flash photography. This intensive workshop aims to help you craft the most sophisticated lighting for a variety of setups. Although we are exploring multiple flash setups, you can try out a variety of equipment options in the workshop before committing to invest in any more units for your own kit. We will have Nikon, Canon, Godox, Elinchrom and a few generic units available for you to explore. The workshop includes practical sessions and worksheets so that you can record your settings and compare your results. We will also work with high-speed flash to explore opportunities to capture movement and access shallow depth of field in bright conditions.
