Dana Lane of Dana Lane Photography gave a lecture on using natural and speedlight for weddings and portraiture.
It was a very informative lecture with a variety of tips, from how to prepare your clients to equipment.
Some of the equipment Dana uses on a shoot:
- Canon EOS 5d mark iii.
- 4 Channel Wireless Trigger for External Speedlights by Cowboy Studios. The cost of this trigger is under $30, and you get two receivers for that price.
- The Gary Fong Whaletail Reporter. This item is discontinued by Gary Fong, but you can probably find it on eBay.
- Canon Speedlite 580EX.
- Yongnuo YN-560 II Speedlight.
- Impact Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc - White Translucent - 52.
Dana tells clients to prepare for a shoot by checking how the models are dressed in catalogues of JC Penny's or Macy's.
