About the event:

Do you own or have you recently purchased a Canon Speedlite but are unsure how to use it to its full potential? Would you like to learn how to get the most out of your Speedlite either using on camera or off camera.

Join Canon Collective Ambassador Gemma Ortlipp at the Canon Experience Store to learn all about the Canon Speedlite system and how powerful even just 1 Speedlite can be for a range of subjects and lighting environments.

Learning outcomes include:

• Shooting with Ambient light vs shooting with a Speedlite
• Shooting in both ETTL and Manual Modes
• Learn how to manually zoom your Speedlite to either spread or focus your light
• The diifference between using a Speedlite on camera vs using a transmitter and taking it off camera.
• Ways you can modify your Speedlite to alter your result

We will use still objects as well as use each other to test and learn how to use Speedlites effectively
