Flash & Winter Weddings

£275 + VAT | 1 day

Learn how to shoot amazing winter wedding images using available light and off-camera flash. Part theory, part working with a bride and groom on location you’ll learn how to overcome the challenges that winter weddings bring.

Taught by top wedding photographer Mike Garrard, during this specialist course he will explain how you can prepare for winter weddings, what equipment he takes and why, and most importantly how to use that equipment to maximum effect.

The afternoon shoot session is held at Hedsor House where you will practice indoor portraits using both continuous lights and off-camera flash. During the shoot Mike will demonstrate various lighting accessories such as grids, speed light soft boxes and video lights.  After the shoot you’ll head back to the studio to further explore how images can be enhanced using post-production editing tools such as Adobe Lightroom.

It does not matter whether you shoot with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji or any other brand. We are teaching the fundamentals of off-camera lighting which can be applied to any system.  In order to keep up the pace of the shoot and not lose time changing equipment, you will use Mike’s camera and flash system with your own memory cards (you get to keep your shots).  Of course, you are welcome to bring your own gear too and if required we will help you find any of the settings that match our set-up on the day.
