Most photographers own a speedlight and use it on-camera to capture events such as weddings or parties, as well as to light-up interiors at night. But many have been dissatisfied with the harshness and artificial quality of the light!
In this seminar you learn how to modify the light put out by the speedlight, and create beautiful light every time!
We’ll start with all the issues around bouncing the light – available walls or ceilings, distance, power issues, balancing with existing ambient light. Should bounce not work, we will talk about the best ways to soften the light and, again, how to integrate the existing ambient light into the picture.
For shooting in bright sunlight, the speedlight can be a life-saver, opening up the shadows, but with (again) a modifier to soften the light, and the appropriate exposure compensation, to insure the flash is not noticeable in the final image!
This class is being taught on the Zoom platform.
