Chapter 4 Introduction
Welcome to chapter four and this is all going to be about mastering our gear because up until this point well, you also have a good understanding between strobe and constant light, and the difference is basically in how they expose differently in camera, we also covered understanding lighting in depth. We covered primary and secondary light positions, how to modify the soften or to create more speculative versus more diffused light and so forth. We even talked about how to modify your color temperature for corrective versus creative purposes. Now, at this point in getting in a champ report, we're approaching when we're going to start going into our actual shoots, but before we do that, we need to learn the actual gear. Okay, so chapter four is dedicated to actually mastering are flash gear. We need to learn how to use all the different functions between full feature and manual flashes and so forth. So for you gearheads, well, you're gonna absolutely love this chapter because it's all a...
bout this stuff and for those that hate your gear well, your loveliest chapter because it's so much better than having to read your manual. All right, so what do we talk about in chapter four? Well, we're talking about first onboard versus hot shoe flash we're going, then move into full feature versus manual, flashing basic differences between them at that point will be moving in a t t l vs manual, and it will be talking about tt l vs manual. In terms of recycled time, you learn a lot of interesting things about tl versus manual and why we prefer using manual mode whenever we're using flash. From there, we're gonna go into flash power. Zoom hss versus nd filters so high speed sync versus a neutral density filter. Well, then go into f c s or first curtains sinking versus rcs rear curtains thing, which we talk about a little bit earlier. So, without further ado, let jumpin to chapter four.
Lighting 101 follows in Photography 101's footsteps. Photography 101 takes students up through Manual Mode mastery and provides a foundation in natural light techniques and modifications. Lighting 101 picks up by teaching all about flash and light modification. But, just like Photography 101, we want Lighting 101 to be the most accessible lighting course available. So we teach you everything about flash lighting, light modification, ambient to flash balance, lighting patterns, off-camera lighting and even multi-point off-camera light setups. But, what makes Lighting 101 truly special is that we do all of this with nothing but your on-camera hot shoe flash. Every image shown and created in this course was created with a DSLR and just a single on-camera hot shoe speed light.
