Tidewater Camera Club

Are you at the mercy of the light that's available? Do your on-camera flash photos look flat and predictable? With a little knowledge, practice and equipment, you can take control of light. This course covers portable flash on-camera and off, specifically: when to use flash; light modifying tools (bounce cards, Stofen, Fong, etc.); how to combine flash with available light (including flash-fill to reduce high contrast and using ambient light as "fill" in flash photos); how to make flash replicate great natural lighting; how to bounce flash effectively off ceiling, walls and reflectors; and how to balance interior and exterior light. You will learn to visualize a result that is different from what you see in front of you . . . and then add (or subtract) light to achieve the desired result.
