About the event:

Are you ready to master off camera flash? Well this is the one you've been waiting for! Join Greg Sullavan from the Canon Collective at the beautiful Brisbane Botanical Gardens for Macro session with a wireless speedlight flash twist. In this workshop, we will have a small workshop on mastering the connectivity between Master and Slave. Once we have achieved this, we can move onto the practical component on location in the gardens. During this session, we will split the group into pairs to get the experience both shooting and lighting.

In this workshop we will discuss the following:

• Master & Slave relationship
• Establishing a Wireless Connection
• Channels & ID numbers
• Introduction to Groups of Speedlites
• Advanced Metering technique
• ETTL vs Manual Speedlite settings
• Advanced EOS Focus technique
• Off Camera Lighting Technique

Limited Canon Collective equipment will be available for loan.
