Speedlite for beginners workshop

1605BWP40081 0710 webLearning how to use light effectively is an essential skill to improve your photography. This workshop is all about harnessing the capabilities of your flash to create better images in all kinds of situations.

In our experience Speedlite flash is one of the most misunderstood aspects of photography – this workshop will overcome this misconception and open up a world of possibility with your photography. We explain how the system works, the clever things it does to make photography simple, plus when and how you may need to take a bit more control.

The course is a mix of presentation and hands-on learning. With the flash system explained, you’ll have a practical session designed to reinforce the classroom learning with hands-on flash photography. You will have the opportunity to work with a number of simple lighting approaches with our workshop model.

Your tutor is an expert with each and every Canon Speedlite and digital EOS camera. You will receive individual guidance on your EOS camera and Speedlite, whatever combination you own.

By the end of the day you will be making pictures with flash and confidence, both in bright light and darker conditions.

Learn about: 

 – How the Canon flash system works
 – Choosing the right camera exposure mode and how it affects your images
 – Making use of flash creatively in bright and low-light conditions 
 – Reducing and eliminating red-eye in portraits
 – Controlling a single off-camera Speedlite

You will need:

Bring your EOS camera, standard zoom lens or short telephoto lens and a Speedlite. Make sure to bring some fresh batteries for both the camera and flashgun.

Who should attend this workshop?

You need to be comfortable using one or more of the creative modes (P, Av, Tv, M) to make the most of this workshop.
