If you would like to know more about how to light your portraits using only speedlite's, then join us for an informative night of portrait lighting techniques using primarily speedlites. If you only have one light don't worry, as we will start with simple but effective one speedlite set-ups, and then progress on to multiple speedlites and we will end with a combination of speedlites and studio flash. We will look at the various modifiers that are available to help you shape the light to your requirements and help you create dramatic portraits in varied conditions.
At Kayell Australia we know the value of education and we wanted this workshop to include education from some of our talented staff. With that in mind we have allocated at the beginning of each shoot time to breakdown each set and explain the choice of flash, modifiers and accessories being used and how these choices will deliver the desired effect you will be shooting
