Flash Class

Business No Comments

Another 2010 goal COMPLETE!  I wanted to do a flash workshop and learn some cool lighting techniques.  It was a workshop by Wendy Schultz-just love her style and her superb teaching abilities!  In this picture we were learning how to use the corner of a room like a reflector.  She was showing another student some functions while I continued to practice my shots.  Learning to correctly use flash both on camera and off camera is a balancing act.  All I can say is time to practice, practice, practice!  My mind was opened to a whole new world-new possibilities.  Now, if only I had the Canon Speedlite 580ex II!  The flash I use is great but a few things are limiting: it has a 90 degree angle where I can’t swivel it all the way around, I can’t put it in manual mode, and when I need to adjust the compensation I have to fumble with my menu instead of pressing the exact button right on the flash.  I learned a great deal with it and again… my wish list goes on!
