  FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY LEVEL 2 - Intermediate Course (Wireless)

About This Course

Compelling photography is all about shadows; shadows help show three dimensions, shadows help provide mood. Even if you have minimal experience, this course will show you how to achieve consistently creative results with your wireless flash equipment.

This course will show you how to get much more interesting flash shots by taking the flash off the camera and firing it either through a cable or using a wireless system.

The course will also cover how to mix flash with ambient light as well as how to kill ambient light even in the day time using manual controls.

Please note that this is not a studio flash course, it is solely aimed at external dedicated flash guns.

What kind of student takes this course?

The Flash Photography Level 2 - Intermediate Course is aimed who have been using on-camera flash for a while, but now want to expand into wireless flash situations. The ideal student for this course is looking to gently ease themselves into using some key techniques and buttons that will help them improve the wireless flash lighting all of their photographs.

What past experience is needed?

This course assumes that you have been mainly using Program Mode, but have been attempting , Shutter Priority and Aperture Priority Modes. It also assumes you have not necessarily been understanding why some flash effects work, and some do not. Our goal will be to connect the various dots you already have while showing you some simple, yet key techniques.

Recommended Equipment

To get the most out of this course your camera needs to have Aperture and Shutter Priority modes, ideally an SLR or Mirrorless camera (see here for information on the different types of camera).

The course is also suitable for Bridge Cameras and high end Compact/Point & Shoot Cameras, as long as they have Aperture Priority Mode (A or Av) AND an external hotshoe.

You will also need at least one external, dedicated flash gun that uses a version of TTL eg iTTL (Nikon), ETTL (Canon). All of the main camera brand flashguns are suitable, including ones from the likes of Metz, Sigma and Nissin. You will also need to have a trigger to fire the flash once it is off the camera (some brands allow the pop-up flash to be used, check your user manual.

First and foremost, we believe there are no stupid questions, just questions about things you do not understand. On our courses, you will never be made to feel silly for seeking answers or clarification, that is what you pay us for.

All of our courses are designed around common photography scenarios, either ones that you regularly find yourself in, or would like to find yourself in. Our teaching methodology is designed to show you how to take better pictures in every one of them. The content of all of our courses is developed to build on the previous week's tips. This approach allows you quickly and confidently to understand how to improve every photo you take.

We teach each of our courses in such a way that the knowledge you pick up can be easily spread into other areas of image taking. Photography, at its core, is about shutters, apertures, and ISO, but it is HOW you bring these together for each individual shot that matters.
