Natural light is beautifulit’s a photographer’s dream. It is also subject to change without notice, depending on the time of day and weather conditions.

This master class in lighting covers everything it takes to work with studio flash as if it were natural light. Using a model, Ames will demonstrate how to create gorgeous, romantic soft light as well as dramatic, high contrast looks, with attention given to proper exposure and color control. Simple light modifiers are shown, explained and demonstrated. Don’t miss this class to experience how to create natural light with electronic flash, step-by-step. As an added bonus, detailed notes are provided to all seminar attendees. (Register Here)

In this highly caffeinated, fast paced, two-hour session, Joe McNally will start with basic one light, on-camera approaches and quickly move through a series of scenarios, developing more sophisticated, off-camera, small flash setups using multiple speed lights. McNally uses the Nikon Speed Light system, or CLS, but in this class his main efforts will be placed on how to use the light, instead of the buttons and dials, so that his lighting lessons can apply to all camera systems. Emphasis will be placed on moving fast and using the intuitive capabilities of TTL wireless flash. (Register Here)
