You've been asking for it and now you've got it!  Melissa will teach a 3-hour course on using FLASH both on and off your camera.  As photographers we are artists and tend to lean towards using the right side of our brains (the creative side).  Using flash, especially more than one flash, is very technical and requires us to use our left brain.  Melissa will help you tap into your technical side and teach you the skills to master your Speed-Lights.

Very limited class size (6-creatives MAX).  You will get very individualized attention.   Learn how to master your OWN gear and discover new gear you may want.  Overland Park Photo Supply will bee supplying all kinds of cool gear for us to play with!

Skill Level:  An intermediate to advanced photographer who is new to using off-camera flash.  You will want a basic knowledge of how your camera works and exposure.  {hive}  is a safe place to learn and ask questions :)

Class Description:  A workshop to help you learn the basics of flash photography.  Instruction will include how your flash(s) work both in manual mode and ETTL.  We will cover both camera and flash exposure and how the two work together to give you the "look" that you want to achieve in your images.  We will play with all kinds of light modifiers including gels, umbrellas and soft-boxes.  Using radio transmitters will also bee discussed.  Instruction will include using flash as your main light as well as fill light, hair light and background light.  We will discuss how to create the quality of light you want allowing you to increase your creativity.  

Equipment needed:  A  DSLR Camera with at least one external flash.  If you have more than one flash, that's great!  If you do not have more than one flash, no problem, come learn how everything works! You will know what equipment you want to invest in to get the "look" you want for your images.

Instructor:  Melissa Slater, Owner of Slater-Studios of Photography & Design and {hive-workshops}
