Speedlight 101 - off-camera flash ground zero

  • 8167 Cooper River Dr Colorado Springs, CO, 80920 United States (map)

This class will teach you how to inexpensively create an off-camera flash system that will serve you well. 

In this class, you will learn that you don't have to spend a lot of money for an off-camera flash system. I will teach you how for a fraction of the cost of a brand-named speed-light, a very good flash system can be purchased and configured.

You will also learn how to combine a speed light, radio trigger, and off-the-shelf soft-box to create a flash system that's hard to beat. 

Many photographers think that on-camera flash is the best or only way to light a subject without using expensive studio strobes. However, on-camera flash is often the worst way. On-camera flash works in a pinch, but off-camera flash is far more often the best way to go.
