Learn Digital Photo - Advanced Course - 6 sessions - 14 hours of learning
This collaborative course is for the competent photographer who wants to push their skills further. We work in groups to explore the new technologies in DSLR and Mirrorless system cameras.
Learning to use Speedlight Flash effectively, on and off camera when photographing models in the studio or location.
We explore using HHS or FP, High Speed Sync features on Speedlight flashes.
We have a trip to some iconic London locations to use Neutral Density filters in the daytime to create stunning slow shutter landscape photography, and the follow session is post-production in Adobe CC Lightroom on those images.
We further investigate playing with depth of filed and fast lenses to creating stunning Bokeh in images and use my specially designed Bokeh filters.

What you need
A DSLR or Mirrorless system (miro-four-thirds ) camera
A dedicated Speedlite hot-shoe flash

This should be an integrated system Speedlight / External hot-shoe flash unit. we will use a wireless system to fire remotely from camera to the flash unit when the flash is not attached to the camera, so off-camera flash firing, for example, a Nikon D7000 DSLR camera with a SB-700 Nikon Speedlight with work using the cameras pop up flash as an optical slave.
Canon’s (wireless flash system) and other brands will have similar dedicated hot-shoe flash systems. This is sometimes called “off-camera flash”,
