After a very successful first One Simple Flash Workshop I’m excited to announce that I’ll be hosting two more workshops this February.
9 & 10 February 2011 – Little Stream, Constantia, Cape Town
15 & 16 Februarie 2011 – Oakfield Farm, Muldersdrift, Johannesburg
Cost – R2500
– A clear understanding of the basics of photography like ISO, shutter speed and aperture
– The workshop is not for beginner photographers, but rather for beginners in terms of ‘off camera flash’
What the workshop is all about:
Although the title indicates one flash I will lightly touch on ‘on camera flash’ as well as multiple light setups, but we’ll concentrate on using one simple flash in various setups and conditions.
On day one we start off with the basics (things like different types of flashes, hardware, light stands, triggers and modifiers). There will be lots of samples, live demo’s and plenty Q&A’s. After lunch I’ll move onto the more technical stuff like camera/flash angles, working with the sun and multiple light setups.
On the morning of day 2 we’ll do some recap from the day before and then move on the more advanced stuff like high speed sync and how to manipulate the ambient light. I’ll do a demo shoot in the early afternoon with a model after which you will get time to play and apply your newly found knowledge. I’ve also arranged for a whole range of demo gear that I’ll discuss.
By the end of the workshop you will understand off camera flash and be able use your flash quickly and efficiently in a time constrained wedding shoot.
Some of the topics that will be covered:
Triggers – From Pocket Wizards to Poverty Wizards and everything in between.
Different types of speedlights/flashes
The ‘voice activated light stand’ – aka flash mounted assistant
Ambient vs. flash exposure
Flash brackets, holders and some other thingamajigs that makes life easier
