Basic Flash Workshop

start using flash...

Flash can be an intimidating piece of photographic equipment. This one and a half hour workshop is a great starting place if you have never used flash. We start with the explaining the equipment all the way through to measuring the light and you using the modifiers. Come the end of the workshop you will be able to use the equipment confidently and understand how to set them up before taking your own photos.

Like all our workshops we will work with you to demonstrate the techniques and show you what's going on using a big screen.
