If you thought a top-of-the-line DSLR was necessary for professional-quality portraits, you will be amazed at the incredible results possible with the current offerings available from compact mirrorless cameras.  With full manual controls, RAW file capture, and the ability to use industry standard accessories, you can take advantage of the same tools the big DSLRs use to create beautiful images.

Join host Joe Brady as he puts mirrorless cameras to the test by using PocketWizard PlusX radio triggers and a basic light meter to shape light in environmental location portraits.

Do you shoot only using available light because the concept of fill flash with ambient light continues to be both frustrating and inconsistent? If you want to take control of the light and add shape, depth, and dimension to your subject, this presentation is a must see.

Getting your flash off-camera is the first step towards professional quality portraits. See how easy it can be and learn how to make it work for you!
