One Simple Flash Workshop at Oakfield Farm

We had a great two days out with Sybrand Cillers on this worskhop at Oakfield Farm on a beautiful summer’s day. 

The workshop covered on camera flash, off camera flash, sync speeds, ambient vs flash exposure, using pocket wizards, over powering the sun, turning drab lighting into amazing light.

Day one we started off with the basics (things like different types of flashes, hardware, light stands, triggers and modifiers). After lunch we moved onto the more technical stuff like camera/flash angles, working with the sun and multiple light setups.
On the morning of day 2, we moved on the more advanced stuff like high speed sync and how to manipulate the ambient light. We also did a demo shoot in the early afternoon with a model to get time to play and apply our newly found knowledge.
