    Sedman HeadshotLocation Lighting for Wedding Photographers
    with Stephen Sedman, M.Photog.Cr., BFA

    Have you ever taken a picture, looked at the screen, and just scratched your head wondering, "Why did that happen?" There is no perfect flash system, but if you understand how it works and where it can fail, you will learn to love your flash. You will learn why things happen, and more importantly, how to fix them.

    Join Stephen for this live demonstration program as he takes you through demystifying using a single flash accurately and creatively. He will then add two or three more, and it will really start to get interesting. Stephen will talk about manual, auto, and TTL multi flash use. This is a fully interactive program, so feel free to ask questions.

    Stephen is owner of Sedman Photography in Hingham, Mass. and has been a professional photographer for over 35 years specializing in weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, senior portraits, children and family portraits, and corporate headshots. Stephen possesses a unique mix of fine art, computer/internet, and photographic experience. Stephen's paintings, sculptures, and photography are in many public and private collections throughout the country. Stephen has won numerous Kodak Gallery awards, Fuji Masterpiece Awards, PPA Loan Collection images, as well as Courts of Honor awards from PPAM and PPANE.
