Event description

Description

Understand and be inspired by your Speedlights/Speedlites.

About This Course:

A head-shot to an environmental portrait, from friends and family to the bride and groom. Business people to that person who simply has ‘character’.

Portrait shooting is truly an art in itself. Enjoyably challenging, fun and very rewarding once you have the skills to realise your options.

An ideal follow-on from John’s ‘Flashes Of Inspiration’ workshop, or for those who have mastered the basics of Speedlite operation on and off camera, this course goes further into this fascinating subject. Using the indispensable tool of portable flash. The day is ideal for the enthusiast to the pro photographer shooting subjects of any age and gender.

This workshop provides real-world solutions to achieve consistently rewarding portraits and logical routes to get you there.

Common to Johns events, there are also lots of general photography and equipment tips to bring everything together alongside the main aspects of the day.

Some of the content covered includes:

  • How to light and sculpt your subjects with Speedlights

  • The best lighting arrangements for different face and body shapes

  • Explore the headshot from business to beauty

  • Understand and bring to life the "environmental" portrait with lighting attachments that work well with speed lights

  • Shooting outside - working with or against natural light

  • Dealing with glasses, skin issues and more

  • Step by step easy to assimilate and repeat lighting scenarios

  • Q & A throughout

  • Practical sessions

  • Wireless off camera flash shooting - shaping your light and subjects.
