Wex Workshop: Shoot it with Speedlites/Speedlights - Art Nude Photography with John Clements

  • Days: 1

Course Details

When utilised to the full, a set-up of one or more Speedlites/Speedlights can be an amazing lighting tool. John Clements is one of the most experienced photographers when it comes to Speedlight photography. 

With decades of use behind him and often called upon by some of the biggest manufacturers to explain their products, John’s workshops have a reputation for being full of useful, repeatable, and inspiring content.

Art nude photography is one of the oldest and most established genres.

Delegates will be amazed at the image quality attainable with the right accessories and technique.

With clear indications of light placement, light shaping tools, planning a session, composition and more, this is a most comprehensive day for Speedlight photographers. 

Using previously shot images by way of explanation, John shares the techniques needed by those shooting images in a home situation, to more exotic locations, inside or out. 

Delegates also have ample opportunity through the practical sessions on the day, to create their own images, as the techniques are explained and explored. 

The day covers the settings needed to use off camera multiple flash arrangements, using a wide range of light shaping accessories.

Delegates are requested to bring their cameras and if they wish flash units, plus lenses from around 50mm to 135 mm or similar in coverage (full frame). A macro or micro lens is also a useful solution.


Some of the content covered: Off camera wireless flash control explored. Working with flash and ambient light outside.
