Crash Flash 2: Multiple Flash with David Honl

This class is for students who have taken Crash Flash 1: On-Camera Flash and would like more information. The first part of class will be spent reviewing information from Crash Flash 1: 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, the instructor 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 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.) Please bring the Canon 580 EX II or Canon 590, or the Nikon 800 or 900. The less expensive flashes, such as the Canon 430 or Nikon 600, work well as a second flash.
Please bring plenty of extra batteries for your flash units.
