I’m gonna do it again folks! This one is a supercharged version of the last one! MONSTER LIGHTING TACTICS 2.5 will be held January 18th, 2009 in Torrance California! Last time it was a wild workshop filled with D.I.Y., Models, Diffusion, Smokes, Gels, Cheap Crap, and more to inspire you to shoot and think out of the box! THIS ONE WILL BE EVEN MORE HARDCORE!

I’m gonna show you how to build tools on the cheap, give you a brief on the roll of shutter, aperture, camera and lens on the outcome of your images, learn to meter effectively, learn the holy grail of light (the inverse square law), how to use gels, use smoke, we’ll discuss composition, hi-key images, low-key images, how to light in a cramped studio environment, you’ll see how I work with models live, how to mix natural light with flash, I’ll show you my “even-a-caveman-can-do-it” headshot system for natural light, learn to thrive with only 1 light, go ballistic with multiple lights, the BEAUTY DISH, the RINGLIGHT, the STANDARD 7″ REFLECTOR, the SOFTBOX, the UMBRELLA, the OCTABOX, the LIGHT PANEL, Innovatronix Tronix Explorers, … and more!
