One, Two, Three, Light Fashion Photography 

What you should know:

Knowing basic strobe, lighting, and lighting patterns using one, two, or three lights can mean the difference between an amateur and professional images. 

There are tons of videos and books on lighting and most of them are helpful as reinforcement for practical lighting applications. The key to learning studio lighting is doing it repeatedly.  

Join me as I demonstrate and introduce you to fashion lighting using studio strobes basics that will increase the quality of your images whether your are in-studio or on location. 

What you will learn:

1. Exposure - how lighting and distance effects our images.
2. Quality - what you should do to achieve the best quality
3. Color - achieving the best color and white balance
4. Direction - good lighting is directional and easier to follow
5. Highlight - the brightest part of the image is key in a portrait
6. Shadow - knowing how to use shadows is important for drama
7. Contrast - find out why contrast is a major factor in portraits

We will use:

Modifiers are an important element in studio strobe lighting. We are going to cover the different styles of modifiers and how you can use them to shape your lighting.  

During this session we will explore modifiers (Strips, Octa's, Large Softboxes, and beauty dishes) and how they affect the following 7 areas.

We will meet from 7-9 pm and bring your camera and a strobe triggering device, for example a Pocket Wizard or Radio Popper, if you have one.
