Event description

Description

Reps from Phottix, Sekonic and Sigma will be in our classroom to lead a workshop on portraiture. From measuring the light with a Sekonic Light Meter to utilising portable light sources like Juno and Mitros Speedlights and the more powerful Indra500. Adding to the mix will be the opportunity to try out some of the awesome Sigma Art Lenses.

You be able to work hands on with the equipment and gain an understanding of just how easy it can be to light a subject for a portrait.

Overview of topics covered

  • Review of the Sigma Lens line up, focused on their most popular Portrait lenses
  • Using a Light Meter
  • Understanding the essential controls on a Flash
  • Implementing a variety of modifiers to produce different results
  • Setting up the lights for the best result
  • High Speed Sync (Canon, Nikon and Sony users)


Outline for the Day

  • Sigma Lens Overview
  • Phottix/Sekonic overview
  • Break - the classroom will transform into a studio!
  • We will create a one light set and multi light set

After the break we will break into groups and start creating images.

Fred with Phottix/Sekonic will demo each booth's "possibilites"

Each group will get to work on each set, for at least 30 minutes or more! Within your group each person will take turns being Photographer, Model and Photo Assistant. This is a great way to understand all of the elements that go into creating a professional portrait, as well you may even get a new headshot for Facebook! ;)

During this hands-on time, we encourage you to try new things, move the lights and experience. You will have support and direction to guide you through getting the best shots.

We will wrap around 2pm.

What to Bring

  • Camera
  • Lens (something in a portrait range, 35mm - 85mm
  • Memory Card
  • Notebook for taking notes

This workshop is open to all camera brands! There will be Sigma lenses available to try for the event, however they will only be available for Canon, Nikon or Sony cameras.
