Flash course – ONLINE
Learn to use your Flash like a pro! Self-paced online course supported via our private Facebook group.
Pre-requisites for the course:
– you should be comfortable with using your camera in manual ( preferably) or priority modes – if you shoot mostly in priority modes we may be asking you to switch to manual at times – don’t worry, we’ll help you through it 🙂
– you should have a detachable flash unit with a swivel head and ability to set its strength manually – if you don’t yet have a flash, we’ve put together a guide to buying your first flashgun. It’s now been updated to include our recommended models.
– while the majority of the course focuses on using the flash ON camera, the third module introduces shooting with OFF camera flash – most cameras will allow you to trigger flash with your existing pop-up flash with no additional equipment needed. However you may also consider purchasing a remote flash trigger – depending on the type you’re after, you may spend as little as £10 on a simple trigger, or from around £50 for a more sophisticated controller unit. Again happy to advise whether you do need it and if so, what model to buy
