9:30 am: Lighting on Location - The Canon Speedlite Difference
Wedding photography guarantees high stakes, fast pace, and almost certainly moments of poor lighting. A candle-lit indoor venue is perfectly romantic for the occasion, and doesn't have to send you scrambling to catch important shots. Speedlites will transform your images, and set you apart from other photographers. Canon technician, Peter Lee, will be leading this workshop. Hands-on learning will include a variety of speedlite topics, such as:

  • Flash photography basics – how aperture, shutter speed & ISO affect flash exposures.
  • Learn how to operate the various shooting modes in the Canon flash system.
  • An introduction to Canon E-TTL automatic flash exposure, manual flash, & flash exposure compensation.
  • Off-camera flash & Canon’s radio wireless flash system with the Speedlite 600EX-RT, Speedlite 430EX-RT III and Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT.
