Maybe a workshop on how to deal with the sun if out and about taking pictures? different directions can give different effects, but how do you use each one best?

And maybe something about photographing fast-moving objects (animals :P)?

Hi, I'd like some tips on taking photos while its snowing or even possibly raining ie. how to capture the snow still, or give it a sense of motion.

Thanks,
Barnsey.

HI Gordon, I also have two suggestions:

1. Flash Photography (Huge Potential)
General
Bouncers
Flashing agains Seeling
Wireless Flash
Studio
Metz SCA System (Could be a suggestion for Tests :) )

2. Portraiture
Usage high apt. Lenses (50/1.4) + Softness
Light (Soft light)
Daylight
Rule of thirds?

I'd like to see a video tutorial on macro photography. What lenses to use, camera support, how to get the subject in focus if your lens doesnt have that close of a focusing distance, etc. Thanks!

I would like to second both Tyler & hubery... ie

Detailed session on Macro & the next one on The Usage of Flash would be really nice...

More Over I don't believe that post processing is doing good towards the art of photography... Its an art by itself..may be...

+1 on the Flash photography...

Highlighting the differences when used in Av and M modes.



***
I rarely use my built in flash (400D) due to the nasty results I get. I even bought a 50 f/1.8 to minimize my flash usage but having seen some great images online where fill-in flash has been used I feel the urge to learn.

Thanks

Flash technique?

- Flash Mode (Slow Sync, Front, Back Certain)
- Bounce, Diffuser, Color Gel

Lots of people including me don't have much experience on using flash.

There's a video just like that coming up from me, I'll send you a PM once it arrives.

Suggestion: I've been interested in macrophotography for quite some time. Maybe a workshop on how to use macrolenses (with their tiny DoF at large apertures), extention tubes, etc. and how to maximise the chance of getting sharp images (cable release) would be nice.
