  • Days: 1

Course Details

When utilised to the full, one or more Speedlight can be the most amazing lighting tool.

John Clements is one of the most experienced photographers when it comes to Speedlight photography.  

With decades of use behind him, and often used by some of the biggest manufacturers to explain their products, his workshops have a reputation for being packed full of useful, repeatable and inspiring content.

An ideal follow-on, from his ‘Nikon & Canon Flashes Of Inspiration’ workshop, that many of our customers have attended and had high praise for, this series of workshops takes things to a new level.

Subject by subject after a quick reminder of the basics, we now turn Speedlights to lighting specific genres of photography.

Art nude photography is one of the oldest and most established.

This course shows step-by-step how to achieve top quality results with portable flash.

Our aim is to produce imagery or very high standards, befitting the best of the genre using off-camera Speedlights, alongside the many real-world techniques important to reach that goal.

Ideal for those shooting with either the Canon or Nikon system, but any equivalent portable flash, delegates will be amazed at the image quality attainable with the right accessories and technique.

With clear indications of the right like shaping tools, planning a session, composition and post capture, we believe this is one of the most comprehensive days for Speedlight photographers.

Using previously shot images by way of explanation, John shares the techniques needed by those shooting images in a home situation, to more exotic buildings, inside or out.

Delegates also have ample opportunity through the practical sessions on the day, to create their own images, as the techniques are explained and explored.

The day covers the settings needed to use off camera multiple flash arrangements, using a wide range of light shaping accessories.

Delegates are requested to bring their cameras and if they wish flash units, plus lenses from around 50mm to 135 mm or similar in coverage (full frame). A macro or micro lens within that range is also a useful solution.

Some of the content covered:

  • Off camera wireless flash control explained.
  • Working with flash and ambient light outside.
  • Working with flash and ambient light inside.
  • Sculpting your subject with light.
  • The right light shaping accessory for the effects desired.
  • Posing techniques.
  • Finding the right location.
  • Into post capture.
  • Practical sessions.
