Enrollment limit: 15 students
This class is for students who have taken Crash Flash I: On-Camera Flash and would like more information, but are unable to take Julia’s one-week intensive Mastering Your Flash class. (Offered in Antigua, Guatemala, 2012). The first part of class will be spent reviewing information from Crash Flash I: On-Camera Flash, such as using flash as the main source of light and as fill-flash. We’ll review how to determine exposure, how to control the light output of a flash, ways to diffuse a flash, why and how to include or exclude ambient light, and how to use wireless flash technology. After the review, Julia will demonstrate how to use multiple flash — with light stands, umbrellas, and gels — in the studio and on location, with both wireless TTL and with radio slaves. There will be a four-hour shoot in the afternoon to put all of the techniques to use with agency-represented models as subjects. At the end of the day, a critique will take place to view students’ work.
This one-day workshop is not for people with no knowledge of their flashes, but rather for those who know a little and want to learn a lot more. All participants should be familiar with the buttons on their flashes and where to look in the manual, if questions arise. (Please read the manual again before class.) "The Crash Flash I: On-Camera Flash" is strongly recommended.
