Ticket Registration

In this workshop, you will learn how to make High-Speed Sync Images– using Profoto On-Camera Flashes and Small Strobes.

***Registered Attendees will receive a Gift Card to Samy’s Camera for the ticket price they paid for the workshop!***

How does the new technology in flash units make images that were impossible 10 years ago?

Come spend an afternoon with us, and we’ll hand you some modern Profoto on-camera flashes and small strobes, that will help you make High-Speed Sync images. Learn how to balance ambient light with flash – and how to choose when to make one or the other most visible in the final photo. Master how to dramatically change the mood of the image when using flash outdoors.

You’ll want to make use of your wide-aperture prime lenses (though zooms will also work) and leave with some new awesome images for your social media and portfolios. We’ll provide models and all lighting gear – just bring your camera.

After the class, you will learn how to select your best shots, and how to share them with the models and the class. You will gain the understanding and confidence to use Profoto on-camera flashes and strobes and start making beautiful light on your next photo shoot. When you get used to getting stunning images with Profoto, you will want to purchase your own – and Samy’s will be there to help you!
