Discuss this workshop

Learn to use Nikon's innovative wireless flash system in our completely revamped workshops.

For anyone who owns a SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910 flash and wants to understand how the i-TTL (intelligent Through The Lens) system works and what Nikon's Creative Lighting System (CLS) can do for you. We'll have lots and lots of flashes, and will set up many different types of shots using the i-TTL system (speedlights, cameras, gels and filters). You will learn flash techniques that will help you solve difficult lighting scenarios. We'll cover methods on how to creatively light situations that arise in studio photography, outdoor portraits, product photography, closeup and flower photography, web and product photography, travel photography, fill-flash photography and night photography.

Our workshops classes are kept small (15 or less) so that we can spend a significant amount of time learning the cameras as well as answering individual questions. We guarantee that you'll learn more about your Nikon flash in this workshop than you ever thought was possible.

In our workshops, you will "Hear it. See it. Do it." so that you come away from the day with the most incredible learning experience you've ever encountered.

Photographers who have come to our previous workshops tell us time and time again that our classes are the best they've ever attended. Try it out for yourself. We guarantee that you'll be satisfied and that you'll learn techniques that will greatly improve your photography.

To put it simply: our workshops are the best available anywhere.
