Lighting Workshop: One Light. Starting with Off Camera Flash
July 31, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm CDT$300 – $350
About Momentum’s One Light. Starting with Off Camera Flash Workshop
Have you ever wondered why some images pop with color and contrast while others are overexposed and flat? Flash Photography is an asset in any professional photographer’s repertoire. The sun doesn’t always give photographers the best light at the right time to create a shoot. So learning flash is essential.
On the other hand, when used poorly, flash photography can create looks that are often terrible and unfavorable for your subject or client. With everything in life and photography, knowledge and practice can help you improve your understanding of light. In this Momentum Workshop, you will be introduced (or reintroduced) to flash photography by educator, author, and professional photographer, Cam Evans. Cam will introduce lighting concepts that take your current understanding of continuous natural light, exposure, and composition and bring you into the flash photography using one off camera strobe light.
- How flash works for natural light shooters
- Balancing natural (ambient) light with flash
- Using a light meter to set your exposure
- Understanding TTL and Manual Flash
- Understanding flash roles and when to use them
- When and how to use Studio strobes versus speedlights
