Photography Workshop: Intro to Off Camera Flash – Woodland, CA

Been doing photography for a while now, but ready to add another level to your photos?  Been wanting to invest in a flash, and trying to use it off of your camera for creative effects?  Ever tried to shoot an indoor evening event without a flash and felt like it was impossible?  Ever had to use that awful pop-up flash that is part of your camera as a last resort?  Wish there was a class that would just purchase the gear you need for you and then show you how to use it?  Well, you have come to the right place!!

I started working with off camera flash about 2 and a half years ago, and loved the flexibility it gave me to add drama and depth to my photos.  I love that when I have a flash with me, I am not limited by the natural lighting conditions.  I would love to share some of what I have learned with you in this intro class.

We will start the day with a short talk on the idea behind lighting and some lighting basics, and then we move into the bulk of this hands-on workshop.  We will have models available (probably dressed up like brides) to photograph as they get hair and makeup done and then move around an indoor facility with very little ambient light.  I will lead you through different types of setups and you can practice live in class with your very own manual flash and transmitter and receiver!

Best part?  You get to KEEP the flash, transmitter AND receiver once the class is over!  I know what you are thinking… “What’s the catch?  How can she offer such a great class AND the gear for just $375?  Will I have to listen to a timeshare speech??”  And the answer is “No.  You won’t have to listen to any timeshare speeches.”  But I WILL introduce you to the lighting system I use and I think you will love it.  Oh, and you can use the images you create in the class for your portfolios, too! (Just keeps getting better, right?!)

Space is limited, so email me today to book your spot (  The class will be held in Woodland, CA on Sunday, November 24 from 1pm – 5pm (that is the Sunday before Thanksgiving week).  Tuition is $375.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity for a hands-on introduction to off camera flash!

NOTE:  This class is geared toward photographers who shoot with a D-SLR camera (Nikon, Canon, or Sony) and are already relatively comfortable with shooting in manual mode.  A basic understanding of exposure settings will be very useful.  No experience with flash required.

Hope you can join us!
