After months of work, our new digital workshop—Mastering On-Camera Flash—is finally here! I'm so excited about this workshop. Even better, scroll down to find out how to win our entire Digital Workshop Collection! Best of all, we've launched this workshop at the amazing price of only $29 (reg $49) which also includes a $20 gift certificate. See all the details here and don't miss out on this crazy price, good until September 30, 2013.
Let's face it. On-camera flash is hardly anyone's idea of exciting, powerful photography. I can't think of a time that I've run out the door to a photosession, giddy with excitement over using my speedlight on-camera.
That being said, on-camera flash is the one skill that saves the day. Every.Single.Time. It's not a "sexy" thing to know, but it's the one skill that can save a difficult situation. And when you really know what you're doing with on-camera flash, the light from a bare bulb flash can be flattering and even pretty. I'm often amazed at how soft and natural on-camera flash can look.
Here's a case in point. The first image was shot without my flash firing, so you can see that my model was a little dark and shadowy with the background being a little bright. The two images after were taken with the same metering, only with my flash firing. Both images were taken with bare bulb flash pointed straight at my model. You actually get to watch me shoot these images on the workshop supplemental videos.
A more images from the workshop. I love that the workshop doesn't rely on any gadgets or diffusers. Instead, it just focuses on how to use your flash bare-bulb to get the best results. I love that these images were all taken using on-camera flash in a variety of situations.
Don't miss out on this amazing workshop!
Even better, to celebrate this launch, we'll be giving away our entire Digital Workshop Collection which also includes our Mastering On-Camera Flash workshop to one lucky person. To enter, just post a reply to this blog post. If you already own tour Digital Collection or the new workshop, no worries. If you win, we will refund your purchase! We'll announce a winner on Tuesday, Oct. 1.
