DC Area Camera Clubs

Are you at the mercy of available light? Do your flash photos look flat and predictable? With a little knowledge and practice, you can take control of light. Using one, and occasionally two, battery operated flash, this class will cover:

•Why use flash in the first place, especially with cameras having high ISO capability
•Pros and cons of light modifying tools, like Stofen, Lumiquest, Fong
•Bouncing flash off walls, ceilings and reflectors to simulate natural, directional light

•Combining flash and ambient light (including using flash as "fill" and ambient as "fill")

•Using colored gels for special effects

•When to use umbrella

•Creating hair and edge lights

Students will have ample time to practice what they learn in the class.
