Through lecture and practice with your own camera and flash unit, you will learn the basics of flash operation and how to use the flash more creatively. The first part of the workshop covers the basics; the relationship between flash, ISO (film speed), aperture/F-stop, and shutter speed. The remainder of the workshop will consist of building on your understanding of the basics by concentrating on modifying the flash for more creative control; bouncing flash, using flash off camera, missing flash with available light, painting with flash and fill-flash are discussed and practiced.

The Tempest

A tremendous tempest causes a shipwreck and scatters a cargo of noblemen across a mysterious island. Little do they know that Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, is at the helm of all magic and mystery. In Shakespeare's last and most magical tale, fairies and spells unwind villains' desires, tie lovers together, and unknot past wrongs. Shakespeare’s glorious tale of magical creatures, love and forgiveness on a faraway island is sure to captivate in our outdoor space, the Root Family Stage. In celebration of their 65th consecutive year of touring, we’ll be returning to an old format we’ve used in the past, in which National Players veterans compose half of the cast of this professional show, mentoring current National Players who take the younger roles. (Recommended for ages 8 and up)
