How much can you learn about lighting in about 3 hours?
How about how to get stellar light with a less than stellar budget (my favorite topic), diffusion, aperture, shutter, how to build light panels, scrims, diffusion, the “Inverse Square” Law, photograph 2 live models, build cheap reflector boards, beat the 12 O’clock sun, hard light, soft light, falloff, feathering, distance – size relationship, bounce lighting, how to use an incident meter, ebay wireless transmitters, el cheapo Britek strobes, softboxes, umbrellas, how to use a brolly box, simple 1 light setups, 2 light setups, glamor lighting and more!? How about getting a free workshop booklet that covers most of the information from a FREE workshop!
Here’s some of the phenomenal images that workshop participants and myself created at the workshop!
