With a basic understanding of the camera’s aperture, shutter, and ISO controls, adding the versatility of electronic studio flash to a photographer’s tool kit is easier than most people think. Studio flash provides much more light than is available from battery-powered speedlights. These flash units include constant modeling lights to show what the flash will do before taking photos.  Studio flash is not at all limited to studio use. It can be added  seamlessly   to natural light, indoors or out.  This Event Space class explains in simple terms what studio flash units do and how to use them. Power output, controls, modifiers and how to measure the light produced by studio flash are explored in detail. This is a how-to experience that shows examples of actual lighting challenges that are solved with lightweight, durable, and affordable Dynalite power packs and heads.  Commercial photographer Kevin Ames shares his work, created with Dynalite electronic flash. He shows behind-the-scenes photos, detailed lighting diagrams, and explains what each light does. He even explains how to simply measure the exposure as well as how to control color and eliminate unwanted color casts. Photography is life. Kevin Ames is living it to the fullest. His career encompasses commercial photography, authoring books on Photoshop, Lightroom, as well as on photographing women, two magazine columns (Digital Photographer’s Notebook) in Photoshop User, (Lighting Photographer’s Handbook) in Light It!, and speaking engagements in the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia, at Photoshop World, WPPI, and Photo Plus Expo. Through it all, he maintains his studio in Atlanta, Georgia, working with clients including AT&T, Westin Hotels, and Honda Power Equipment. His work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Time, Atlanta Sports and Fitness, has been exhibited at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art and on corporate websites, in brochures and catalogs.
