About the course

Speedlights are a great, relatively inexpensive add on for your camera. Used badly, they can ruin a shot, but if you understand how they work, you can turn a shot from bland to wow! In some cases you can get a shot that without the flash you simply would not be able to capture

In this workshop we look at these great little pieces of equipment and start to introduce you to using them, both on the camera and off camera.

We start off looking at how they function and the various setting and then very quickly get to some practical work using the flashes on camera.

Then we move on to looking at using them off camera.

This is a great introduction to using speedlights that will make you want to start experimenting yourself and start taking your photos to the next level.
