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.
