Flash is one of the most useful yet least understood tools available to the nature photographer. The addition of a supplemental light source can dramatically increase your productivity by allowing you to get quality results in a much wider variety of light conditions.
The class will start with the fundamentals and mechanics of flash operation and then go on to cover :
- Relationship between flash and ambient exposure
- Front, rear, and high-speed sync
- Flash as main, balanced, and fill light
- TTL flash
- Flash Exposure Compensation
- Manual flash
- Flash metering
- Flash Exposure Lock
- Use of Better Beamer
Each concept and technique will be demonstrated by having participants conduct their own tests using their own equipment in the classroom. Weather permitting, we will also move outdoors for some "in the field" testing and demonstrations.
The main goal of this session is to teach you what you need to know to make effective use of a hot shoe flash when shooting outdoors. But, in addition, you will also gain a strong foundation of general flash knowledge which will serve you well if you choose to go on to learn more about multi-flash setups and indoor studio lighting.
Bring your digital SLR, external hot shoe flash, and a small lens (e.g. 24-70 or 70-200) to class.
