March 2019 T&T
Charles Dirks – Basics of Using a Flash

by ecc

March 27, 2019
BERGEN PARK FIRE STATION
7pm (6:30 SOCIAL TIME)

The goal of this T&T is to be able to dig down to the bottom of the camera
bag, find the flash we bought when we bought the camera and actually feel like we can use the flash to get better pictures.

Todays flash units often come with nearly as many settings as our cameras. Which of these settings are required, which are useful and are there some (hopefully) that we can set once and forget or never use?

I will share my flash settings and explain how I can just pick up my flash and simply turn it on and get predictable results every time. I do have one camera setting I use occasionally, flash compensation and we will go over when, why and how.

Hopefully, your flash can move from the “I have one, but never use it” to “I use it every time it is needed”. There are certainly times where the flash will not solve all your lighting situations, but there are several lighting problems that a flash will help.

Bring your flash if you want.

Doors open at 6:30 for social time.

Members, guests and students welcome.

Join the Evergreen Camera Club on March 13th at 7:00 pm (come early to socialize) at the Evergreen Fire & Rescue Building, 1802 Bergen Parkway, Evergreen to understand Joseph’s thoughts and techniques to make his images his own. “The idea of Off the Beaten Path has come to me over the years as I make my journey within the craft both seeing the landscape as others have and putting my twist on the scene.”

Joseph Roybal is a professional fine art landscape photographer based in Denver, Colorado. His passion for photography stems simply from his love of the outdoors. His tagline, Explore.Learn.Share., is based on Joseph’s ability to combine his personal experiences in the field with his developing knowledge of the art, and to educate others who share his love for photography. His imagery is presented in a way that speaks to the importance of protecting natural habitats and is reflected in his involvement in organizations such as Rocky Mountain Climate Organization and Protect Our Winters (POW). Joseph is proud to be represented by several of the industry’s leading companies such as AtlasPacks, ZEAL Optics, Mountain Standard, Peak Design and Breakthrough Filters.
