Off Camera Flash – Workshop

Instructor John Francis
Duration Time 1 Session 10AM -2:30PM
Location Unity Orlando - 4801 Clarcona Ocoee Rd, Orlando, FL 32810
Class Description

The aim of flash photography is to make it look like you didn’t use flash. The best way to achieve this is to make make your light source bigger, make it directional and balance it with the ambient light.


In this 1 day workshop we will review the art of balancing flash and ambient light, discuss the use of various modifiers (umbrellas, softboxes, reflectors, etc.) available for small flashes, show you how and when to use flash in TTL and manual modes, and explain how flashes can be used off-camera for great lighting both indoors and out- doors. We will work with the extensive Godox equipment and put it all into practice with a hands on session both in & outdoors. At the conclusion of this class, you will be able to achieve great results with even just one off-camera flash. If you are a budding “strobist” this class is definitely for you.
