Seeing the Light With Your Camera Flash
with Rick Allred
October 8 - October 11, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Now that you have learned the basics of your camera, it is time to tackle available light and your flash equipment—sometimes called speedlites, off-camera flashes, or small strobes.

When we as photographers start to take control and gain hands-on, practical experience, it becomes time to take the camera off auto-mode and start managing the balance between available light and flash. At first encounter, speedlites, with all their bells and whistles, can seem like technical monsters. But as we explore our flashes on manual mode, the control of light begins to make sense and, at the same time, stimulates our imagination.

Understanding and exploring lighting can give you consistent control over the “feeling” of your images. Our focus is on the color, quality, and direction of light. We use available light and flash to enhance what we see and what we want to capture with our cameras. In addition, we use these tools to express ourselves creatively. Daily assignments and two evening sessions photographing in Santa Fe are a part of our planned activities.

The atmosphere in this four-day workshop is one of exploration, practice, and play. So bring your cameras, speedlites, thirst for knowledge, and creative vision.
