This hands-on shooting workshop is for students who want to take their location lighting skills to the next level to create magazine style images. Models will pose for the class in this unique space. Students will use a wide array of light modifiers on Profoto strobes, as well as color gels, to create images where the light and color set a mood, create a style, and evoke an emotion! Color temperature and custom white balance will be used in balancing the strobes with the existing ambient light for creative effects.
