Following the HPW 10th Anniversary Celebration, a number of people asked if a class on the basics of flash photography could be provided. That’s what this class is all about.

If you have a flash, and really don’t know what to do with it –

If you’re thinking of getting a flash, and want to know how to get more out of it –

If you want to produce great portraits with just one flash – this class is for you.

Our class will cover the following:

• Flash overview – so what does this thing really do?

• On-camera flash – how to achieve a pleasing image with your flash attached to the camera

• Flash to Subject Distance – how it affects your image

• Getting your flash off the camera – suggested gear

• How shutter, aperture and ISO affects flash

• Camera and flash settings

• Test shots and reading your histogram

• Using off camera flash outdoors

• What a second flash can be used for and how to set it up

• Resources

• Q&A

What to bring:

• Notepad and something to write with

• Your camera, flash, modifiers and triggers (if you have them)
