Details: Join us for this incredible photo workshop in the City of Lights. Are you interested in learning how to take better travel portraits? Want to know how to shoot a compelling image using a speed light in one minute or less? Or maybe you want to get a photograph of Elvis against the neon city lights? This class will be loaded with fantastic photo opportunities while participants learn how to create evocative portraits and master lighting techniques.

We have secured access to a number of spectacular locations, and group size will be limited to 10 participants for maximum hands-on learning. With generous support from Elinchrom and Rogue we will have extensive gear for all the participants to use. Each participant will receive two ebooks: The Practical Lighting Handbook and Create Better Photographs.

On this course you will learn about:

  • Characteristics of light
  • Portrait composition
  • Using light modifiers and gels
  • Maximizing available light for the best image
  • TTL and Manual speed light use
  • High speed sync flash
  • Working with models; the do’s and don’ts of posing
  • Strobe packs vs. speedlights
  • Effective, simple lighting techniques for portraits
  • The one minute travel portrait

Our days will be filled with class time mixed with photo shoots. We will be photographing a variety of models including “Elvis”, dancers and cowboys. Locations include an old west town, a dry lake bed and urban settings. On Saturday morning, we will have a morning image critique before more photo shoots during the day. This class will provide ample opportunity for all participants to practice flash techniques and work with models during the photo shoots.
