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.

What will I receive?
This Lovegrove video production has been split into several bite sized parts to make it quicker and easier to download. Each part is a zipped folder containing the video files you need. Once you’ve downloaded and unzipped everything, place all the files into one folder and store in a safe and convenient place on your computer. We recommend that you download one part at a time to help reduce the chance of a connection failure, resulting in incomplete files.
How do I download my order?
Once you have completed checkout you will be redirected back to our site and will also be sent an automatic receipt via email – both will contain the download links for your order. Please check your spam/junk folders if you think you haven’t received your download links!
Please also make sure your email address is correct when checking out.
How do I play the video on my tablet or smart phone?
We recommend you first download the files onto a desktop or laptop computer, where, in most cases, you have the ability to extract (unzip) the zipped files. From here you can synchronise the files with your smart devices in the usual way. For seemless viewing of chapters/parts we recommend you create a new playlist in iTunes, drag in all the video chapters/parts and then synchronise the playlist to your device.
Please don’t attempt to download the videos directly onto your mobile device (tablet, ipad, smart phone). You’ll need to download the files onto your desktop or laptop computer first.
We also strongly recommend that you create an online account with us (if you do not already have one) so that you can easily access all download files in your account whenever you wish.
Quicktime support for PC users
You may have read about Apple ceasing support of Quicktime software for Windows users. PC users have also been encouraged to delete the Quicktime application from their computers for fear of potential security risks. We would also highly recommend PC users delete Quicktime as soon as possible.
Whilst our videos may state they are Quicktime files, they are actually H.264 encoded MPEG-4 files that should play perfectly fine within many other media players and pose zero security threat in themselves. VLC is a popular free media player that plays .mov files. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html
