Why speedlights?

 
Speedlights are extremely versatile small light sources bristling with technology. The good news is that they are simple to use with the right know how. In this video production, Damien unleashes your potential to control the light around you, and shares with you the techniques that he uses to create striking portraits lit with Speedlights on location.

Please note : This is not a beginners (step by step) guide to speedlights. 
This is an inspirational tutorial to take your TTL speedlight photography to the next level.  If you are a beginner and want to avoid the manual, why not hire Damien on an hourly rate to talk you through the basics.
Email Blaise for more information.
 
Top Tip
 
In iTunes create a new playlist, drag in the downloaded chapters and the video production will run seamlessly. You can then sync the video to your iPhone or iPad in the usual way and take it with you anywhere.

*You may need to have the latest Quicktime player. It's available free here.

Who is Speedlight Mastery for?

This video production is for any photographer who uses or wants to use Speedlights on location.

Damien shows exactly how he designs a picture from scratch deciding upon background, lens choice, shooting position, and framing before he goes on to set up the Speedlights. Once the lighting is rigged he brings in his model and shows how he evolves the shoot, working with his model to get the look he wants.

This production is jam packed with tips, ideas and solutions to problems you've yet to encounter. It's a video designed to inspire and stimulate the creativity within you. Damien delivers the constant stream of valuable information in a logical and fluid way. If you want to light portraits on location like a top pro then this video is for you.
