Learn to use your on camera flash for Dynamic Portraits

July 14th in Pleasant Hill

Using your flash for dynamic portraits – Wayne Miller

Wayne will show the correct ways to use your on camera flash and speed lights (Hot shoe flash) to create dynamic portraits. Tired of red eye, flat images, and dear in the headlight snapshots?

Then you will want to attend this presentation to teach some of the tricks that professional use to get those great images. Getting the flash off the camera is why professional images always have a better look.

Wayne will have a live demonstration photo shoot with a model and show what changes as you move the flash off camera. He will demonstrate light modifiers that you can use without breaking the bank.

If you want to take better people images then this is an event you will want to attend.

See real time how each capture changes with the flash and modifiers.

 NCPP Business 101 A to Z a new photographers guide to business success was a great success.
