How do you photograph a car wreck using speedlites?

This Sunday I am predicting that there will be a car wreck here in the south of Canberra, and I will be there photograph it, will you?

Lighting subjects can be a daunting affair and lighting something like a car wreck is like trying to tight rope walk across the Grand Canyon while blindfolded.  It can be very scary and full of danger.

  • So how do you even approach such a thing?
  • What are the lights and techniques you can use to light both the inside and outside of the car?
  • What are the tools you need to use to pull this off?
  • How can you control the different lights to bring the image to life or focus on areas that you bring to life?

My half a day one off lighting workshop this Sunday will answer just these questions and more like:

  • What is the best camera setting for using lights on location?
  • What limitations does lighting bring to a photo?
  • What problems will you come across shooting on location using multiple lights?
  • What is High Speed Sync and when/why should I use it?
  • How to use colored Gels on your lights to change the look and feel of your images?

  1. lol. Even more dangerous with a camera and a heap of speedlites.. 😉

    It should be an interesting workshop as its a nice setup that I just happen to be able to get access to.

    I should have a couple of models, some fake blood and other props the help paint the picture.

    I will even have a dead man for the early part of the workshop. 🙂
