taking your off-camera lighting creativity to the next level
NOTE: Off-Camera Flash 101 (or a solid understanding of how to use your OCF) are PRE-REQUISITS.
If you want to produce images that make people stop and go, “Wow, how did they DO that?” you’re in the right place. If you want to take photos that will set you apart in an over-saturated market, you’re also in the right place. If you want to bring your lighting to the next level, yes, well, you know what I’m going to say!
You know how to use your light, it helps you when daylight is not readily available, but…. now what? How do you take those skills and create truly stunning and unique works of art? Come join us, and I will show you how!
This course does NOT cover the basics of use and assumes you have a good existing control of your lighting. (If you do not, I highly recommended taking OCF 101 as a pre-cursor to this workshop, as it will have you the master of your own light in no time.) THIS workshop is all about your INNER CREATIVE. How do you use your light as an expression of your art? How do you tell stories and evoke mood with it? I share ALL my tricks, and hold nothing back. We will cover all things creative, and even delve briefly into lighting groups and using two off-camera flashes simultaneously (for those that are looking for new technical skills).
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop will be offered twice a year only and will NOT be offered as a Download & Go in between Live Runs.
