LATEST NEWS - During the challenging times we are all facing in the UK, our first thoughts are for the health and wellbeing of our photographic community and staff.

This workshop will show you how to shoot urban Dance portraits using Speedlights on location. Starting with a single Speedlight, we will explore how to look at light and the many ways to colour, shape, modify and diffuse and freeze movement as well as using creative blur. Working with a professional dancer, you will have many opportunities to shoot for your portfolio. We will also cover how to work with flash gels and show you how to easily control multiple Speedlights to create complex and theatricle looking dance portraits.

It is assumed that those attending will have a basic knowledge of photography and speedlights. you will need an understanding of aperture, shutter priority and exposure, or have already attended either Getting Started / Getting Creative with DSLR Photography or Speedlights workshops.
Average customer rating for this course:
"Ricci was a great tutor on this day photographing the talented dancer Chelsea in the streets around the school. I had been keen to try dance photography for the first time and to get more confident using a speed light and both were achieved. Ricci took us through some key stuff before we went out and then was on hand to help each of us as we had a go. We were lucky it was a small group. Chelsea was so patient with us! Much appreciated. This is my second time with the Nikon School. Thanks!"
"OMG - what a fantastic workshop. A brilliantly executed dance workshop, with Ricci providing technical guidance and tips throughout. Dancer Chelsea was very professional and great fun to work with. The use of speedlights gives my photos a whole new look and very punchy - if you love dance or portrait photography or want to learn something new - then this workshop is definitely for you"
"I decided to get the early train from Newcastle and make this a day trip to enjoy and I must say I did. It was well worth the trip. I use manual strobes with large modifiers usually and using TTL with Speedlights was different approach and gave me a new way to consider shooting. Ricci explained what we were aiming to achieve and the group was small enough that we all got plenty of time to shoot with the dancer. Next time I'll try out equipment I don't own as well, like a Z6/Z7 :)"
"The course was brilliant. I learnt a lot from the course and because of the small size of the course it also gave a chance for some one on one time meaning i got the most i could out of the course. Neil was a great tutor as well being very clear in his explanations. 10/10 I would recommend to any photographer and I am definitely going to plan on doing another in the future. "
"Neil did a great job in adapting to the horrible weather conditions on the day, and delivering a very informative practical workshop, while dodging the rain and winds. Their was plenty of time to ask questions, and try some kit out, and to see what can be achieved in a relatively small space. I would thoroughly recommend a Nikon workshop to other photographers, regardless of skill levels, as all were catered for on the day. Thanks Neil for your time. Regards Andy"
