Learn the secrets to mastering the complexities of today's flash units and take great photographs!
Do you have an electronic flash and are baffled on how it all works?
Have you ever felt like you hate your flash because you just can't figure it out?
If so, that is understandable. Today's flash units are so technically advanced that even pros find them intimidating!
However, with an understanding of the amazing features included in today's flash units, your flash unit can quickly become your new best friend.
In this course on using flash, I will take you step by step and demystify EVERYTHING about your flash.
If you have Nikon SB800 or SB900/910, Canon 580EX, 580EXII, & 600EX-RT I GOT YOU COVERED! I will show you how the flash unit works inside and out and if you don't have Canon or Nikon, you can still learn a ton of information about flashes and easily apply the same techniques to your flash.
I will show you:
How light works
How lighting angles affect your subject
How your flash works
What all those buttons and symbols mean
How to create soft light and hard light
How to use flash modifiers
How to mix flash with natural light
This course then takes you into applying the flash in a variety of situations like:
And you will learn how to obtain perfect flash exposure, how to work with the flash off-camera, and how to modify the light.
I am confident by the end of this course you will be saying: "I LOVE MY FLASH!"
As co-author of Understanding Flash with Bryan Peterson and author of Outdoor Flash Photography, I have created this course to answer all your nagging questions and advance you from flash novice to flash expert and quickly. All the basics are covered from light and flash theories; to using flash on camera and off; understanding the power of your flash and how to apply it; shutters and f/stop and their effects on flash; flash modes such as TTL, Auto, and Manual; bounce vs. direct flash; diffused flash, and a few surprise techniques thrown in for fun.
So, are you ready to enroll? Go ahead because there is nothing to lose. My promise to you is you will love this course and learn how your flash works or your money back. If in 30 days you are not happy with this course then just ask Udemy for a full refund and no questions will be asked! I promise!!

Hi Charlie, wow, I have learn soooo much and got so much information in such a short time. I was thinking of taking another class after this one but I have to wait and try/do all new things that I´ve learned. You have really given me the beginning information that I needed. Thank you so much, goodbye and good luck:-) - Tuss B.
Charlie, Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!! This has been one of the most wonderful classes I've ever taken. I've learned so much about lighting and had so much fun completing the assignments. Thank you too for all your advice about equipment and technique. I'm sorry the class is ending. I have enjoyed it so much. - Fran
Excellent! Thanks Charlie. Great course. Lots and lots of great material you provided us. I had no idea that flash photography required a different way to think. You've introduced a tremendous amount of new ideas that will give me plenty to play with and experiment. I will be looking for more of your courses to take in the future. Thanks! - John
Thanks Charlie for a great course. I very much appreciate all the detailed knowledge you shared with me. I feel armed and dangerous! You are a great instructor. I'll let you know how my commission turns out...I'd love to be one of your successful students...Cheers...Helen
Charlie, Thank you so much, I thoroughly enjoyed your course. I felt challenged with the assignments and greatly appreciated your comments. I especially am grateful for the ideas you left me with to continue to work on.
I still consider myself a newbie to photography; there are so many things to think about and try to remember while setting up a shot. Flash was something I didn't think I wanted to try and mess with. When used correctly the results are fantastic. But all too often it is just so obvious and harsh. You helped make it a more natural tool to use to get that "perfect shot". I would love to take another flash course if one becomes available. I would like to see PPSOP offer more on this subject. Thanks again, Bill
