A powerful skill at your fingertips

Advanced and professional photographers do not generally use any of the semi-automatic modes (e.g Aperture / Shutter Speed priority etc..) when shooting in a studio environment. This course will demonstrate why, and show you just how easy it is to use Manual modes for consistent exposures and how it can aid the learning process.

Content and Overview

The course goes right back to basics, but also covers advanced topics. You'll learn about the equipment, what to buy and what not to buy if on a tight budget. It demonstrates how to put the gear together, how to modify it, and shows various ways of triggering the flashes, Exposure is covered in great details, with one video on each of the 5 aspects of exposure.

Come with me on these photo sessions, and watch as I talk through the camera and flash settings and take (mostly) great photos with (mostly) gorgeous models, using a fun teaching style.

A bonus video on product photography is included, a DIY setup that can provide spectacular results. Great for eBay or just making some money on the side.

Absolutely AMAZING!
I have every course from Bernie and I just love, love, love this guy. His courses are presented in such a natural manner, meaning they are truly humorous but most importantly, they are so incredibly educational. Bernie really knows his stuff; he delivers his material in a practical and informative way. Watching videos, he is such a likeable person and is by far one of the best teachers I've ever learned from. His knowledge and passion for photography reaches beyond any photographer I have ever watched. I simply love his courses and I always look forward to more from Bernie. Keep up the superb work Bernie!!

A brilliant course by someone who can indeed teach.
Brilliant course that is easy to follow, does not rush through the topics but still covers what I felt was the spectrum of flash photography that I need. I found the examples very intuitive and easy to transfer to practice.

Bernie Raffe's Course is not a Flash in the Pan
Outstanding course filled with information – all vital to great flash photography. Bernie Raffe presents his course in an all-professional manner yet is very pleasant to watch. Viewing his course has certainly helped me become a better photographer. I would recommend this program to any photographer who has a solid understanding of his or her camera but would like to take it to the next step by using off-camera flash. It is a huge step into making pictures rather than just taking them

Another Home Run!
Thank you once again Bernie. Nothing better in book or video exists in my opinion. A lot of fun to watch. Just wonderful.
