Outdoor Flash Photography Workshop

About the Workshop
Nature photographers need to use fill flash in the outdoors to control harsh shadows and light up the foreground subject. Fill flash properly used will most often improve candid shots significantly. Tailored for nature photographers who want to get the most from on camera flash outdoors.
This workshop is for novices but  will also benefit  people who took my 3 session indoor Flash workshop .

This  3 hour  outdoor sessions covers use of flash in automatic mode,  manual mode  and use of the "better beamer" in the field.  Aspects of flash usage specific to wildlife/ bird photography are hi lighted. We start indoors with some classroom teaching then move to the outdoors.

Some topics:
-  Ev Compensation
-  bracketing manually and automatic
- x sync usage
 - High speed sync
- better beamer flash extender usage
- zoom head
- close up and macro work
- distance covered and how to know your flash has sufficent range
- which flash model to use
- off camera and built in flash
- controling recycle time
I will touch on  Humming bird high speed flash, multiple flash, battery packs, batteries, chargers, and much more.   

You need a camera, lens of 200mm or more, flash (built in will do but off camera is better) Visual Echos better beamer or Harbour digital flash extender recommended but not required.

The flash extender I currently recommend: Harbor Digital design   or 2nd choice  Visual Echoes Better Beamer

Make sure you order the extender model that fits your particular flash model - they are not all the same!

We meet at my home in Dundas near the RBG Arboretum  map  at 9:00AM sharp

$60 per person (contact me to confirm your spot)
