Capturing the Beauty of Motion
Dancers in Motion - Studio Workshop
You will need to bring your flash unit to control the studio flash units used in this workshop
Photographing the beauty and emotion of Dancers in Motion can be challenging but at the same time produce images that are simply captivating.
This one-day workshop is aimed at mastering rear-curtain flash synchronisation techniques to capture the emotive & artist genre of dancers in motion.
Our session will begin with a brief presentation of rear curtain flash synchronisation, the required camera settings and how to set up the studio lighting. We will also cover how to best focus on our dancers, anticipate their movements and master the timing of the shutter release.
After a short break, we will put all of the newly acquired knowledge to practice as we begin to photograph our dancers in a variety of dance movements and costumes. Each photographer will have the opportunity to direct the dancers individually and control the action as you create the images you envision.
You will get the most from this photo shoot if you are familiar with your cameras basic operations, including the adjustment of the aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings. Know how to use the cameras various metering modes and if necessary take the time to review these things prior to the workshop. You may also wish to consider our Basics of Flash Photography Workshop.
We will require a minimum of 4 participants to run this workshop and it will be strictly limited to 8 photographers in order to make sure the instructor is able to give the appropriate level of support to all those attending.
