    Beginning Studio Lighting and Posing (Portrait and Fashion):

     

    Investment: $89.00

    In this 3 hour hands on workshop we’ll cover the principles of studio lighting and posing, using professional studio gear. We will create several, one and two lighting set ups. We will explain and demonstrate in very simple terms distinctive lighting patterns, ratios and metering. The studio can be intimidating, but after this class you’ll feel very comfortable in this environment, where once you understand a few basic principles, your creativity won’t be limited by weather, bad backgrounds or time of day. You will think of the studio as the fun playground it is for us. this workshop will take the mystery out of working with professional studio lighting, modifiers and metering. We will slowly build each lighting set up, explaining how everything comes together to bring our vision to reality. That’s the beauty of studio work, it’s a control environment  where we are free to create! We’ll have a model for this workshop, and PocketWizard triggering devises will be provided.

    Topics covered: We will work with self contained AC and battery powered Profoto D1 and B1 monoblocks, as well as power packs and heads. We’ll use reflectors, umbrellas and soft boxes. We will also talk about posing to make your subjects look their best, depth of field choices, positive and negative fill, using a light meter for fast accurate exposures and setting up your own portrait studio.

    Best Experience Level: Low intermediate and above. You should have a good understanding of F-Stop, Shutter Speed, ISO, and be able to operate your camera in manual mode. A basic understanding of hand held light meters is recommended but not a must.

    What to bring: Please bring note taking material, your DSLR camera, a fresh battery, memory cards and a portrait lens. An 85 mm lens or a zoom is best for portraiture, but a 50mm will work. The ideal lens would be a 70 to 200 mm zoom. If you own a PocketWizard bring that too.

    Investment: $89.00

    If you don’t have any experience working in the studio, or with off camera flash units larger than speedlights, attending our Beginning Studio Lighting and Posing (Portrait and Fashion) before this workshop is highly recommended. This 3 hour class, using professional studio gear will deal with more complex lighting, using three, four, or more light sources. Students will photograph the model with provided PocketWizard triggering devices. In a controlled studio environment, your creativity is the only limit to what you can achieve. This workshop will take the mystery out of working with professional studio lighting, modifiers and metering.

    Topics covered: We will work with self contained AC and battery powered Profoto D1 and B1 monoblocks, as well as power packs and heads. We’ll use umbrellas, soft boxes and reflectors, as well as a beauty dish and a ring flash for more edgy and fashion oriented lighting and posing. We’ll set up kickers, background lights, high-key, gobos and color gels. Background selection and posing techniques will be discussed. We’ll talk about different lighting patterns and styles and work with hand held light meters for consistent accurate exposures.

     Best Experience Level: Low intermediate and above. Having attended our Beginning Studio Lighting and Posing, a big plus! You should have a good understanding of F-Stop, Shutter Speed, ISO, and be able to operate your camera in manual mode. A basic understanding of hand held light meters is recommended but not a must.

Here is our schedule of workshops and classes for 2017 at our studio. Some workshops will be held at the Los Angeles and Pasadena Samy’s stores. If a class or workshop will not be held at our studio, the location is indicated . This year we will concentrate on OCF (off camera flash), Beginning and Advanced Studio Portrait Lighting, the Wedding Workshop and a new Digital Workflow class designed for wedding, portrait and event photographers. For brief descriptions of each class or workshop, including the best experience level you should have to take advantage of the information presented, and the gear you should bring, see our “Class Descriptions” page.

We will have models to photograph at our workshops; these will be couples, for the wedding workshops, and individuals for the OCF and Studio Portrait Lighting workshops. You will photograph the models, and come away with nice images, but these workshops are not meant to be “Portfolio Building Events”, they are meant to teach you how to recreate each situation and give you a better understanding of lighting, posing, photo and lighting gear, and the photographic process.

If you are considering attending one of our workshops but have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email or call us. We’re always happy to chat with you to make sure you attend and benefit from the right workshops for you.
