Ian's Studio, Woodbank Works, Turncroft Lane, Stockport, Cheshire, SK1 4AR



This session is the natural follow on to “PR301- On Camera Flash” and/or “CR104 – Off Camera Flash and Strobist Techniques”.  However, you don’t need to have attended either event to get the benefit of this session.  In this session, we look at the essential techniques of working with one or more off-camera flashes (speedlights).

In this session, you will get to see the techniques talked about in “CR104” put into practice.  You will get to shoot with a model to create protraits.  We will create images using just one speedlight and some with multiple.

The actual lighting set-ups used on the day will be dependent on the weather conditions as this will affect where we can shoot outside, and whether or not the sun can be overpowered or not.

Dragging the shutter techniques will also be taught at this session.

The session is a practical session and you will have the opportunity to practice these types of lighting by photographing a model.  You will be provided with lighting diagrams for the lighting set-ups taught at this session.

The model for this session will be Lynne – https://purpleport.com/portfolio/lynnesel/?referrer=ianbutty 

Suitable for: Anyone wanting to get familiar with off camera flash (strobist) techniques.  No prior strobist experience is necessary.  Your camera must have a standard hot-shoe to accommodate the lighting trigger.  You will need to be able to set your camera to manual mode and select an aperture in the range f/5.6 – f/11.
