Speed-lights (or flashguns) are the first choice as a portable external source of light.

And it can be a lot more useful if we learn how to use properly. Not only mounted on the camera but off-camera too. Not to mention the possibilities if you can have more than one and make them work together.

In the right hand, they can work as well as studio flashes with less cost and more portability.

  • Camera and flash settings for off-camera flash.
  • How and why to get the flash off-camera.
  • The positioning of off-camera flash to your subject.
  • Getting hard and soft light.
  • Off-camera flash lighting modifiers. Learn how to use them and how to make your ones.
  • How to blend flash with natural light.
  • TTL or manual flash? Understand the difference.
  • Lighting setups with one or two Speed-lights.
  • Working with reflectors.
  • Colour gels and creative lighting techniques
  • Using Speed-lights in “Studio” situations.


Equipment required:

Any camera that you know how to use will work with hot shoe or flash connector interface. Your own Speed-light will be recommendable but we can supply one if necessary (let us know in advance)
