About the event:

One of the most misunderstood items in the camera bag is the flash. Join Canon Collective ambassador Jay Collier to demystify the Canon Speedlight system. Learn how the EOS system communicates between the lens, camera and flash to create the output to suit your exposure both on camera and off camera.

Don't own a Canon Speedlite? No problem, as all guests will have access to a Canon 600EX Speedlight for the duration of the workshop.

Learning Outcomes Include:

• Metering your scene
• Understanding and controlling your background vs subjects exposure
• Manual & TTL Exposure modes
• Exposure Compensation
• On Camera vs off-camera set up
• Indoor and outdoor practical exercises to help master your flash
