Matt Krumins Photography

Nov 16th Update:

Firstly just a huge thank-you to everyone who has done the right thing over the past difficult months and a massive thank you to those who have supported my  business through my online offerings. Private and most group workshop are resuming over Nov/Dec with group sizes increasing from max 4 in Nov to max 6 in Dec.

 Safety approach during last reopening (for reference):

  • Group sizes lowered to a maximum of 6 participants (group size of 7 including myself).
  • Hand Sanitiser available at all times
  • Workshops locations are modified to avoid crowded areas.
  • Participants are actively asked to social distance in our safety briefing at the start of our workshop with reminders during our workshop if I believe distances are being breached.
  • Participants who have even mild cold or flu symptoms are not to attend. To assist with this I have removed the requirement for 7 days notice to reschedule to ensure you are not penalised for making the right judgement call to not attend.
  • Masks need to be worn at all times in accordance with Victorian Government recommendations.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss how I am handling these measures please contact me on 0402 812 805.

MASTER YOUR  SPEEDLIGHT

via Zoom with Matt Krumins Photography

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIGHT

I know so many people who have purchased speedlights only to find they sit in the cupboard or bag collecting dust. I also hear a lot of people talking about being ‘natural light photographers’ and whilst natural light is absolutely beautiful, it doesn’t always do what we want it to do. Being a proficient photographer to me means knowing how to make the most of any situation, how to light a subject when the light isn’t perfect and how to achieve the lighting effects you envy on Instagram!

In this workshop my goal is to make you a master of your speedlight; to help you understand when you need to use it, when you need to move it off-camera and how to take control of the shape and intensity, balancing beautiful natural light with the fill of a Speedlight. 

UNDERSTAND TYPES OF LIGHT

Get to know ambient vs flash, soft vs hard, intensity and light behaviour.

ON-CAMERA FLASH

Get to know when and how to get the most from your speed light on-camera.

OFF-CAMERA FLASH

Create stunning still-life images and understand the use of modifiers and reflectors.

WORKSHOP DETAILS

Delivered online via Zoom over 4 weeks! 

A BIG topic broken into 4 chunks with homework
Recordings of each session available
Small groups to keep things personal
Includes zoo entry

ALL BRANDS ALL MODELS

All brands and models covered in this course but you will need a speedlight with off-camera trigger!  Not sure of the gear you need? Give me a call 0402812805.

WORKSHOP PLAN

WEEK 1 - On-Camera Flash
In week 1 we start with the basics. Get to know how light behaves and understand how to use your Speedlight on-camera using TTL. We explore on-camera modifiers and of course how to get the most from your gear in the simplest way.
WEEK 2 - Off-Camera Flash
Explore the endless possibilities of off-camera flash as we talk about light direction, modifiers and how to use our off-camera triggers.
WEEK 3 - Manual Flash & HSS
Kick it up a notch and bring together your knowledge from week 1 and 2 as we explore high speed sync on your Speedlight.
WEEK 4 - Troubleshooting
There is nothing worse that leaving a course with tons of knowledge but no feedback after you've taken things into your own hands. Our final week is a troubleshooting week where we assess issues that have cropped up and make sure you're all set to keep shooting with your Speedlight!

EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS

This course requires a camera with the ability to mount a Speedlight and trigger. You’ll also need a speedlight and radio trigger system to be able to fire the Speedlight off-camera. Modifiers are useful however I suggest waiting until our workshop before making purchasing decisions. 

If you have them, bring them. If you’re camera doesn’t have interchangeable lenses then your lens is already travelling with you :-)

Outside of your camera, speedlight, trigger and lenses you’ll be advised of a few items that will be useful going forward after the workshop however these are not essential.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

You should have a good grasp of your cameras basic functions as well as experience using aperture and/or shutter priority mode. No Speedlight experience is necessary.

This workshop includes the 4 x 1hr Zoom sessions as well as access to the recordings of each session (for personal use only). In addition you will be provided with hard copy notes mailed out to you.
