Off Camera Flash Workshop – January 28th and 29th 2012

Pete Leong and I will be holding an Off Camera Flash Weekend Workshop on January 28th and 29th, 2PM to 6PM

The lesson fee is US$150 and class size is restricted to a maximum of 10 students. The course will take place at my home in Ishikawa, Okinawa and in the surrounding area.

Students should have their own SLR digital camera that they are reasonably comfortable using in manual mode. This is an intermediate level workshop. If you are not sure about things like aperture & shutter speed and how to control them then I’d recommend taking the Photography 101 class first. (The next one will be held January 14th and 15th) If you already have your own flash, sync cords, or triggers please bring them along, but Pete and I will have plenty for people to share and experiment with.

Let there be light - Take that flash off your camera

The course will start with an introduction to the types of flashes we will be using, the different methods to sync them to your camera, and ways to both mount the flash and modify the light it produces. If you think PocketWizards and snoots are characters from Harry Potter then this is going to be an eyeopener.

We are going to practice our new skills in various  situations, so you’ll have the knowledge and skills to go out and try them yourself.
Pete’s a master at balancing flash with a blazing Okinawan sun. He’s one of the busiest wedding photographers in Okinawa, if not Japan, shooting dozens of weddings a month so we’re really lucky to have him sharing his knowledge.

We’ll also work on ways to control the flash so that your subjects are lit rather than simply blasted with light.
