Lighting 101: How to Use Your Flash

Course Overview:

One of the most common fears among new photographers is the reluctance they feel towards using their flash. But this tool opens avenues to exciting imagery!

Being able to effectively use flash allows a photographer to create stunning people pictures, dramatic macros, and expressive landscapes.

In this introductory class we will learn:
* how to use TTL and manual modes
* what exposure modes in the camera work best with flash photography
* how to use flash exposure compensation
* how and why to take a flash off camera
* exposure techniques when using off camera flash

We hope to see you there!

This class will feature an hour-long presentation followed by 30-60 minutes of Q&A.

Tuition: $34.00

Student Testimonials:

"Joe is very knowledgeable. I learned a lot! I'm excited to start using my flash!"


"Joe did an outstanding job. Even though this was "Flash 101" it is still a complicated topic. Joe explained things clearly. Very helpful."

"Thank you! I bought a Godox V1 at Mike's when I bought my Canon 5d Mark IV body a few months ago. When I got home I was overwhelmed by it & how to use it. Joe explained it very well. I feel confident taking out AND using my flash now. I highly recommend this class & look forward to taking others through Mike's Camera."


"Loved the class - very informative. Thank you!"
