Outdoor Flash Photography Workshop
About the Workshop
SMOKING IN THE VICINITY OF THE GROUP IS NOT PERMITTED.
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.
