Using Inexpensive Speedlights for Quality Results


What will you learn at the Chandler Studios Workshop for Lighting and Posing.  Here is an example of just one of the many classes you will get.  Remember this is “Hands On” learning. 

How I did it

This image was captured in our camera room at Chandler Studios using a Nikon D700 and two Speedlights (flashes). I used the less expensive Chinese Flashes and Triggers in the capture.   _7007304_FB

You can learn to master the details of this type of inexpensive lighting by attending our upcoming “Lighting Essentials” Workshop scheduled for 17-18 January 2015. Copy the URL below for details.

What follows is an explanation of how I positioned lights, what I used, and a comparative review of costs associated to the lighting.




Models and lunch are provided for both days. 

Fine Print:  Cost is $349 per student.  There is a $50 discount if you come with a buddy reducing your tuition to $299.  This class requires a minimum of four students.  Tuition includes a 50 page handbook on lighting, a posing guide, lunch and hands on instruction for two days at Chandler Studios.

I had the pleasure of taking courses with Chandler Studios and it has made such a difference in my work. John is patient, kind, easy to understand, takes his time teaching and even will go out of his way to help you. Thank you John for going above and beyond and being someone I look up to. Look forward to learning more from you!

Photographers who have made the leap from Passion to Profession who want to take their lighting and their images to the next level.

Being able to have a creative thought and be able to have it come out of your camera as you imagined is an amazing feeling. In 2011, after taking classes at the college that just didn’t give me what I needed, I spent time with John in his beginner class. I learned the basics, and was encouraged to shoot on RAW. I have never looked back.   Having a strong foundation to build on is so crucial. If you are interested in exploring what you can create with your camera, take a class with John. The sky is the limit, if you start with a good foundation.
