Contest: Win a 2 Hour Mentor Session Via Skype On Flash Photography

Would you LOVE to have the opportunity to ask a professional photographer your “flash questions?” Are there things about flash photography that leave you lost and confused? If so, you do not want to miss the chance to win this prize for this week’s contest.

Ainslie Bernoth, professional photographer and author of the 6 part FREE Flash Photography series on the MCP Blog, which ran September 27th through October 5th, is giving away a TWO HOUR mentor session. If flash still sounds too harsh, or if you wish you could get clarification on certain concepts, you are in luck. You will use Skype or another online internet phone tool to chat for 2 full hours with Ainslie.

To enter, just leave a comment on this post (not on Facebook), and let us know what the most valuable, interesting, or helpful tip was from the 6 part flash series. In addition, feel free to add your flash related questions to this post, in case Ainslie has a chance to do a future Q & A/ FAQ post for everyone.

One winner will be drawn at random on Sunday, October 10th. So check back then.

    I would LOVE to win this. I’ve yet to use a flash with my Mark II, but with the Winter months approaching I’m going to need to start.

    I loved the tip of stopping down to f16 or 22 then using flash at 1/1 for a saturated background

    Flash is not just meant for dark situations.

    I despise Flash. I always equate it to that terrible look of blownout faces and shine spots, with the too dark backdrop. I loved the whole series, it showed me that I can use flash to accentuate my photos instead of take away from them.

    I guess I just realised that using flash can give you so much freedom if used properly.

    Great series, enjoyed it.

    How easy it is to set up flash and use it, it is not frightening to do so!

    I think the ENTIRE series was the most helpful tip. It made me want to drag out my flash and made me WANT to love it!
