Digital Classroom LIVE with Frank Doorhof

Worldwide Online Broadcast

Great Pictures with Speedlights"

July 15th at 3PM CEST / 5am PST / 8am EST

This is a live, interactive, free, online broadcast from our studio in Emmeloord.

Did you miss the live broadcast?  You can watch Frank's online Digital LIVE workshops HERE!

You don’t need big studio strobes to take great pictures. You only need to know how your speedlights work and how to be creative with them. Frank prefers more than one, but you can also create stunning images with only 1 speedlight.

In this episode Frank will demonstrate lighting a model with speedlights. He will show you how to set the lights and coach your model for the best expression.

But there are more advantages to using small flash. If you don’t have space, or just use your living room, small flash is great to enhance the available light and give just a little bit of extra pop.

Frank will show you how you can steer the speedlights for a better result, but also how to get creative by using gels, lens flares, or backlighting. The results are on your screen immediately. And after every setup Frank will show you the retouch process.

And the best thing is you can talk to Frank & the crew LIVE in the chat on YouTube or Facebook.

Special thanks to our sponsors:  BenQ Photographic Monitors, Rogue Photographic, and Nissin Flash.  This episode is all supported by Tether Tools.
