Through visual presentations and discussions of printed matter, participants review examples of the direction and quality of light. They also acquire a repertoire of lighting techniques.

Welcome! We will start every class by reviewing and critiquing your previous work along with the assignments done during the workshop. Please bring a few samples of the best you have done and what it is you would like to do. This will give me an opportunity to concentrate on some areas of specific interest. The critique is an integral part of the learning process because not only do you get feedback on your own work, but learn by the other participant’s efforts. For the first day of class please bring your camera, lens or lenses, and any other equipment you plan to use during this workshop. In preparation for this class you should review your camera manual, and be aware that if your camera does not have a sync socket you will need to get a hot-shoe adapter that will allow you to plug the strobe sync cord into your camera. See you in the studio!
