The workshop starts with creating optimal light with one speed light on camera. Yes, you can make great light with a single speed light! Then adding a second speed light and progress to larger portable strobes. everyone will be working with all types of light modifiers, reflectors, diffusers, soft boxes, umbrellas and strip lights. You will learn adding color gels to make the photographs dramatic, mixing strobe and available light to overpower the harsh sun light, use light meters, remote triggers and controlling your lights with an app on your phone.
The workshop ends with light painting the models!
