Rick is a local photographer, but has hosting this highly regarded workshop around the world, with this being the only planned stop in the area.

Here is some additional detail about the workshop:

This intensive, interactive seminar is designed for wedding photographers, portrait photographers, corporate and event photographers, photojournalists and serious amateurs who want to improve their knowledge of lighting. 

This workshop begins with ways to create wonderful light using a single Speedlite then build on that knowledge by adding a second then third Speedlight and eventually progressing to using studio strobes.

Topics Include:
* Creating with single and multiple speedlights 

* Balancing available light with strobes

* Mixing speed lights with studio strobes as well as determining when Speedlights are really the better option

*The correct way to do color balances, color correction, cross filtering and adding and controlling color in your photographs

Students will work with many different types of light modifiers and see the effects of soft boxes, umbrellas, light panels, screens, grids, snoots, reflectors, gobos and barn doors. You will learn how to create lighting for different types of portraits and lighting situations, both indoors and outside. 

Friedman will also explain the various ways to fire strobes, how to create your own light modifiers and cover the essentials of building your own gaffer’s kit. He will also be available for portfolio reviews, so please bring up to 15 images.

This class explains both Nikon and Canon systems. 

What to bring: 
Your camera, lenses, Speedlight(s), fully charged batteries and plenty of media cards.

    Very good workshop. Rick has a ton of experience and shared his war stories, shared details of how he lit many of his well known shots.. allowed us to use some of the light modifiers that he uses. Very open atmosphere. My only complaint is that on Day 2 we spent 3 hours pulling together the goofy group portrait, and I would have appreciated more discussion on lighting techniques, analysis, etc instead. One hour is all we should have spent on the goofy group portrait.. That being said, I would attend another Rick Friedman workshop.
