Video: Studio Portraits with Mirrorless Cameras and Off-Camera Flash

PocketWizard has a new off-camera flash tutorial (above) hosted by Joe Brady that covers the ins and outs of off-camera flash with mirrorless cameras. In the tutorial, Brady takes the Sony NEX-6 and NEX-7 for a spin with the PocketWizard Plus III and MiniTT1 and a variety of speedlights.

The webinar description from Vimeo is below.

If you thought mirrorless cameras were simply for travel and party snapshots, think again. We’re going to show you how to get truly professional results with this new class of cameras. The surprise (that is no surprise) is that great photographs are created with great light and great cameras, especially mirrorless!

Join host Joe Brady during this studio portrait shoot as he shares an essential group of techniques and lighting styles you can use to create your own beautiful portraits.

What you will learn:
In this free webinar, we’ll cover high key, low key, posing, camera and light position in 1, 2 and 3-light setups for maximum beauty with minimum gear.

Taking your flash off your camera is the first step in making “pictures” become “portraits”. PocketWizard radio triggers are the invisible, dependable link between your camera and your flashes, and featured in this webinar as a key tool for those who want to be a professional photographer.

Controlling light is a skill you can use to distinguish your photography from that of others vying for the same business. A little knowledge about light goes a long, long way, and using a Sekonic light meter gives you a creative edge.

From start to finish, you will learn how to control and choose light for your subject to create beauty, drama, shape and dimension.

Join Joe Brady as he shows you how to change how you shoot with mirrorless – from “taking” photos to “making” portraits.
