With Michelle Turner
Do you have a flash that has been sitting unused in your bag since you bought it? Or maybe you use your flash grudgingly, but find yourself hating the results? This course will teach you how to get natural results from your on-camera speedlight. We'll discuss TTL, manual flash, how to bounce and diffuse, and creative strategies for working quickly in the field.
You will learn how to take control of your on-camera speedlight indoors and using bounce and diffusion techniques to create beautiful images that look anything but "flashed."
Hands-on work will include reviewing images for the exposure triangle and histograms. Then we'll get out and practice shooting in the field. At the end of the class we'll evaluate the in-camera choices that we made while shooting.
Bring to class your camera, an on-camera speedlight that is compatible with your camera, and a reflector (if you have one). You need a flash that can rotate and tilt. (Most on camera flashes can rotate and tilt, but some of the small, less expensive flashes can only tilt up and down and are unable to rotate/swivel—to get the most out of this class you'll want a flash that can rotate/swivel as well.)
