Event description
Instructors Joe and Mirta Barnet will teach you how to create beautifully lit indoor and outdoor portraits using  speedlights; on and off camera, as well as other low priced, medium, battery powered flash units like the Godox AD200. Collapsible reflectors, umbrellas and translucent panels will also be used. We will cover the basic principles of lighting a single subject.

Today’s lighting gear makes it very easy for a beginning photographer to use OCF (off-camera flash) like a pro. Inexpensive flash equipment is now smart enough to send or receive commands from another flash unit or trigger without the need of expensive and complicated triggering systems. Light modifiers like shoot-through umbrellas and reflectors make even small speedlights very efficient and easy use to create beautiful portrait light quickly. 

Topics covered: 

TTL Metering
Wireless flash 
Ambient and flash exposure
Exposure compensation and rear curtain sync
Bounce lighting tips and accessories 
Selecting the best light modifier for the desired results 
Neutral density filters
Depth of field and how to control it even when using flash
Choosing the best background in any given location

Posing your subjects to look their best 

Technical Level:  Beginning/Intermediate. A fair working knowledge of your camera, including Manual Mode, and your speed light are very helpful to get the most out of this class. If possible, go over your camera and speed light’s manual before attending.

What to Bring: 

DSLR or Mirrorless Camera
Fully charged battery
Memory cards
Lenses; The recommended lenses (for a full sensor camera) are a 70-200mm and/or a 24-70 mm zoom, in that order. Alternatively, a fixed focal length lens, like 85mm, 100mm, 105mm or 50mm
On-camera speed light if you have one
Note taking materials
You do not need to bring a computer, unless you like to take notes that way. A handout will be provided.
Triggering devices will be available (so you can use our lights), but if you own a PocketWizard, bring it along.
