Flash Photography for Beginners

Duration: 2 sessions | 3 hours/session

Fee: ₱2,400


If you are already familiar with shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, then you have the fundamentals to dramatically improve the quality of your flash photos.

Itching to shoot better portraits? Better still life and product shots? But can’t afford studio flash? Well, itch no more–we’ll show you how to produce professional studio photos with affordable, portable, camera flash. Even the pros resort to camera flash in the field or indoors, some all the time and not just occasionally.

How do you control the intensity? Create soft shadows that don’t scream “flash photography?” Balance the flash with available light? Or eliminate available light altogether?

The instructor will share the key concepts and techniques behind effective and creative lighting with flash. They will start with simple techniques that improve the results from a camera’s built-in flash then focuses on fill flash techniques and on using flash as the key light.
