Last Saturday, I had a taste of studio shoot - attended the basic flash class by Ted Adnan. Started with the introduction of the flash, basic flash settings, then we moved on to more challenging topics like capturing the background shooting against a direct light source, controlling light around our subject, using multiple flash settings, creating effects and modes using multiple flash etc. etc. We get to compare our result with each other and commented by the sifu himself. The participants were cool. We have Nikon users, Canon fans, and an Olympus dude too. Half of the day went by without the whole students noticing it! Later in the afternoon, followed Ted to do a job - launch of a movie @ KLCC TGV. Supposedly wanted to shoot Telekom Museum before that but the weather was not favorable....came back at around 10pm that night....
The basics of controlling light source from flash guns & natural background lighting...
