In this four-hour class, we will discuss how the Canon Speedlite system works, demystify the “buttonology”, and learn how to use a single flash to create simple, yet professional looking portraits. You will also learn the best methods for controlling flash exposure, balancing flash with natural light, and creating images that appear to be lit with multiple lights; ….all from just one flash.
