Studio Lighting Workshop – Big Flash/Small Flash
- January 14, 2017
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
A Better Understanding of Studio Light, or What the heck do this thing do?
Class Instructors, Bob Coleman & Tom Mowry.
Understanding how light works, and how to make it do what you want it to is the focus of this workshop. You will learn about light; what it does in the studio, why it does what does, and how the various modifiers change how the light works. We will talk about which modifier to choose to get the lighting desired. This will include umbrellas, soft boxes, octaboxes, the beauty dish, grids, the use of reflectors and how to fill those shadows without adding another light.
Understanding these things will take your studio photography to the next level.
If you have some experience in the studio, you will get a deeper understanding of how to improve your lighting skill. If you have no experience with studio lights, this is the perfect opportunity to learn how they work.
The workshop will be a live shooting demonstration. The camera will be tethered and images projected onto a screen so you can see the differences from one lighting setup to another.
Need big results for your lighting but only have speedlights? No problem!
This workshop will also show you how to get the most out of your speedlights. We will look at on-camera flash, on-camera bounce flash and then move to off-camera flash. You will learn about hard-wired flash sync and remote sync systems such as Pocket Wizards. Learn how to get great results from TTL flash and manual flash. We will then look at how to get big results from multiple off-camera flash units, modifiers for your speedlights, and some DIY solutions to getting that big light look.
Instructors Bob Coleman and Tom Mowry will go through some specifics for Canon and Nikon users.
Students are encouraged to bring their camera and flash units so they can get a hands-on experience with their gear.
For students with other systems, please bring the users manual and we will try to answer specific questions about your gear.
Students are encouraged to bring their cameras.
