Event description

Description

In this 4 hour workshop, limited to 6 people, we’ll be on-location taking portraits, and using off camera lighting. The whole time will be spent shooting and practicing with conversations built around it. We'll start with simply bouncing light using a reflector and then build from there. Using differet size flashes with different power settings we'll discuss why you'd use one over the other and how to modify each one. From a bare bulb, to a hard reflector, shoot through umbrella, beauty dish and a softbox as well.

Because there will be a model with us, we'll have someone to practice setting up and position lights around. You'll not only leave with new knowledge on how to work with lighting, but you'll also leave with some great images of an experienced model - so bring your camera! If for whatever reason your camera won't work with the supplied lighting equipment I bring, be sure to bring an empty SD or CF card that we can format, and put in my camera for you to use and take home images.

As we build our knowledge around shooting different scenarios we'll spend a good amount of time discussing the settings needed to acheive specific looks. Especailly when it comes to using High Speed Sync. Understanding why and how to use it to get images that will stand out.

By the time you leave this class, you'll not only have some great portraits to show, but you'll also have a much better understanding of how to approach lighting a subject in an outdoor environment. No matter what type of portrait you shoot, family, couples, wedding, maternity, head shots etc - you'll be able to take these techniques with you no matter what the situation. No matter what our weather conditions, we'll be able to have great examples of how to approach each scenario as our location will offer a variety of different scenes.

***The only prerequisite is that you have some basic understanding of using off camera lighting.
