# 110 The Shoe Mount Flash Demystified
Instructor(s): Bryce Denison
Whether we know it as a speed light or a strobe, the small battery powered flash that sits upon the top of our camera is one of the most useful, and at the same time most frustrating too in the photographers camera bag. This four-hour workshop will help you tame the speed light, mastering its use on and off the camera. Your will learn to bounce the light creatively or modify its output with domes, diffusers and mini soft boxes. Learn about dragging the shutter and rear curtain/second curtain sync techniques. Combine the speed light with ambient light for realistic looking lighting. Filter your flash to match ambient light so you never have orange or fluorescent green backgrounds again.We will set up an instant mini studio with two compact light stands, two umbrellas, radio controlled slaves air electric eyes to fire a pair of strobes. Whether you shoot Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Pentax, Fuji or Sony. By the end of the day, you will have joined the ranks of the strobist. Bring your camera, shoe mount flash and zoom lens with a lens hood.
