Sony Flash Seminar

Description

In this seminar we will examine the capabilities of the Sony flash system.

 

Many new photographers would do anything to avoid using flash. Most associate it with those typical, deer-in-the-headlights family snapshots, yet most professional portraits are shot with artificial flash. Come find out why!

 

The Sony system has many options from pocket-sized flashes for travel, to professional models for weddings and portraits. Learn how to get better photographs from the built-in flash, add-on flashes, multi off-camera flash setups and flash modifiers.

 

Many photographers who want to improve their portraiture skills never do so out of a fear of using flash, especially off-camera flash.

 

First, we will examine the usage of flash in a lecture environment. Then we will go to a nearby park and practice working with flash while doing portraits.

 

Come join Jeff Van Scoyk from Sony and Joe Klocek from Mikes for a fun, educational seminar!

 

Don't have a flash? Don't worry, we will provide gear for use during the event.
