flash photography: the mystery revealed. Scheduled for: 1:15 - 3:15pm. I have heard it before and maybe you have said it; “I hate my flash.” Of all the tools we have to create great photographs, the flash unit might be the most complex to understand for many photographers, yet it's a tool you can't live without. We often have plenty of light, but not always where or when we need it. Fortunately, the electronic flash is always there whenever it’s needed. But truth be told, today's flashes are so technically advanced that even professionals find them intimidating! In this session, we'll cover the features and functions of flash exposure compensation, fill flash, bounce flash, and show you how to shoot portraits, stop action, and add color to your subjects. We also look at wireless flash and the many options available for creative lighting techniques. with charlie borland.
