Why speedlights?

Speedlights are extremely versatile small light sources bristling with technology. The good news is that they are simple to use with the right know how. In this video production, Damien unleashes your potential to control the light around you, and shares with you the techniques that he uses to create striking portraits lit with Speedlights on location.

Please note : This is not a beginners (step by step) guide to speedlights.
This is an inspirational tutorial to take your TTL speedlight photography to the next level.

Who is Speedlight Mastery for?

This video production is for any photographer who uses or wants to use Speedlights on location.

Damien shows exactly how he designs a picture from scratch deciding upon background, lens choice, shooting position, and framing before he goes on to set up the Speedlights. Once the lighting is rigged he brings in his model and shows how he evolves the shoot, working with his model to get the look he wants.

This production is jam packed with tips, ideas and solutions to problems you’ve yet to encounter. It’s a video designed to inspire and stimulate the creativity within you. Damien delivers the constant stream of valuable information in a logical and fluid way. If you want to light portraits on location like a top pro then this video is for you.

    When I met Damien at SWPP I asked for a lighting video which showed several set ups with OCF (off camera flash). Within seconds he put this video in my hands, I thought I was wishing for something special, but he had the very thing I was after. Brilliant video, great for creative ideas. I’ve watched it several items as well, due for another viewing I think!
