Wed 2nd December
We all struggle with low light levels in autumn and winter and have to turn to flash photography, especially when photographing people. In this workshop Nishi Sharma will explore
1. The downside of on-camera flash
2. Introducing shadows by bouncing the flash against a wall or ceiling
3. Fill-in flash
4. Taking the flash off camera to dramatically improve lighting
5. Using simple light modifiers to control shadows
6. Using an umbrella to change the light quality
7. Using simple reflectors to control shadows
Beautiful Naomi will be our model for the evening. I am confident that it will be a fun and enjoyable evening.
