There are simple exercises throughout the day giving you more confidence with your flash, a better understanding of using filters and improving your night time photography.

Filters
Learn how to use filters to darken skies, Neutral Density (ND) graduated filters to improve sunsets or bright skies and create moody dramatic pictures. ND Filters help achieve this effect and can improve pictures in post when using Photoshop or Lightroom. Understand when to use full or graduated ND filters, polarisers and other creative filters, what the stops system means and how to use them.

Flash
If you are new to flash photography this session will teach you how to use both on camera and off camera wirelessly, it is easier than you would think. Understand how to navigate the menu, operate it in ETTL and manual mode using flash imaginatively.

Low Light
Long exposures, slow shutters speeds and using ISO in dark locations produce really interesting images. At sunset ND Grad filters produce better images and reveal the landscape.  Torches, flashes and lights help you to ‘Paint with Light’, a fun skill to learn with great results.
