Flash photography

Did you just bought a speedlight and you dont know how to use it? In this course you will learn all the ins and outs about flash. The light of a flash can be very beautiful if you know how to use it. The flash can be very helpful in difficult situations. You will learn the possible effects.

Bring your own flash/speed light and your manual. Try to read your manual much as possible. One week before the course starts, send an email to us which camera you have and which flash, so we can prepare and help you the best with your settings.

You will learn how to:

  • use the menu of the speed light/flash and meaning of the buttons on the back of the flash (TTL, Auto, M, +/- modes)
  • flash sync speed
  • flash triggers
  • minimise red eyes
  • fill flash
  • bounce the flash both 'off' and 'on' camera; where/when to bounce, and why
  • flash power and how to use it (guide number)
  • deal with mixed light situations (colour temperature)
  • slow shutter speeds and flash 
  • light modifiers (bounce cards, diffusers, umbrellas, soft boxes, color filters)
  • Light painting and effects

    4 lessons on weekdays in the evening and one lesson in the weekend to practice high speed flash with daylight.

    This course will run only 2 times a year.
