Join this fun, hands-on workshop in Sydney and learn how to use flash like a pro!

Using flash in your photography can be a sophisticated and very creative tool that will help you create flattering images of people and still life.

After a brief introduction in the cafe, we’ll set off to various locations around Glebe and Sydney Uni, where we familiarise ourselves with a speedlite flash unit and experiment with its functions and features.

To demonstrate the principles of using flash, we’ll use a model to practise essential techniques such as fill-flash, direct flash and bounce flash, ‘rear curtain sync’ and ‘multi-flash’ techniques.

You’ll learn how to observe the characteristics of light to create mood and emotion in your image, and by the end of the class, you’ll come away with wonderful new skills that enhance your images and take your enjoyment of photography to a new level.
