Leaderless walk – Sherbourne, September 8th

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

We don’t have a leader for the next scheduled walk, so it’ll be another Leaderless one.

Meet at 10:00am at Sherbourne Station – it gets busy so gather on the NW corner, by the TD bank.
Without a leader, it’s up to the group to decide on a route: east, across the viaduct; south into Cabbagetown; west towards Yonge & Bloor; north to Mt Pleasant and the parks; or some other direction – whatever takes your fancy!

Flash Photography Workshop, July 14th

Sunday, July 8th, 2018

Brad is leading a Flash Photography Workshop in Graffiti Alley:

This photo walk we are going to do a workshop on using flash with your camera. We are going to shoot in Graffiti Alley around Spadina and Queen. (If you don’t have a flash, you can use your camera’s built-in flash or just go ahead and shoot the Alley.)

We are meeting up at Aroma Espresso Bar at 535 Queen St West
We will meet for 9:30 am and have a coffee and start the workshop at 10:00 am.
You find me in the alley because I need to do some set up work.

You will need to bring your flash if you have one for your camera. And mount to use off-camera and also any triggers you use.
We will take turns being models.

During the workshop we are going to learn the following flash techniques:

  • The camera flash sync speed (Look this up for your camera)
  • On-camera flash using TTL and flash compensation
  • On-camera flash with a modifier
  • On camera flash in manual mode
  • How to use a ND filter with a flash
  • On-camera flash using high speed sync

Demonstration of off-camera flash doing the following shooting

  • Off-camera TTL Flash and high-speed sync
  • Off-camera manual flash
  • Off-camera flash a with a modifier
  • Using a grid on the flash

I will have a couple of manual flashes that will fit some cameras.

My flashes and triggers are for Sony and can be shared.
I use Godox flashes and triggers so if you have a Godox transmitter you can use my flashes.

We can stop for a coffee break after 2 hours.
After the 3 to 4-hour workshop, we will walk down to the Firkin on King, 461 King St West (unconfirmed) 416-979-5464

If the weather is calling for rain, we will still meet up and do a leaderless walk through Queen West and do the workshop on the next walk weather permitting.

I am parking at the GreenP lot and returning my equipment to my car before the pub. Anyone bringing their equipment can do the same.
