Portrait Lighting Workshop with George Simian
Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Los Angeles, CA
This in-depth exploration of photographic lighting for making memorable portraits will cover both the use of strobe light and of natural light to achieve lighting that describes the features in a way appropriate to the intended feeling of the portrait.
Using professional strobe lighting and a variety of light modifiers, from reflectors to soft boxes to gridded spots, we will demonstrate and apply lighting that softens or hardens the subject's features, and draws attention to their personality. The relationship of subject to background, and the necessary lighting, will also be addressed.
We will have young actors to photograph, and every participant will work in turn with 3 different lighting scenarios, taking home a wide range of images, ready to be included in your new portfolio!
We will discuss and practice establishing rapport and collaborating with your subjects, as well as a short overview of the digital post-processing workflow.
Experience: Intermediate Level : Attendees should have a good understanding of F-Stop, Shutter Speed, ISO, and be able to operate their camera in manual mode.
What to Bring: Please bring your DSLR camera, notebook, and pen. Be sure that your camera battery is charged and that you have a memory card with room on it for photos. Lighting equipment will be provided by Samy's Camera. There will be a 45 min lunch break, area restaurants are within walking distance or you may pack a lunch.

REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS:
Our goal is to provide a fun and professional learning environment that fosters a positive experience and builds a strong relationship with Samy's Camera customers. Unless otherwise noted, all classes require advance registration due to limited seating and/or availability.
Samy's EDU makes the decision to run a class based on the attendance level 48 hours prior to the class. Because of this, we can only offer a refund if you notify us by sending an email to EDU@Samys.com 48 hours before your class. If you fail to provide email notification or if you cancel less than 48 hours prior to the class all monies will be forfeit and you will not receive a refund.
On occasion we may cancel a class because of low enrollment and/or unforeseen professional conflict on the part of the instructor. Should this be the case, all monies will be refunded in full. We do not take responsibility for non-refundable airline tickets, so please buy a refundable ticket if you are coming from outside of Los Angeles.
