1PM-5PM Sunday Sept. 27th. Council Photography Studio 830 Stewart Dr. Sunnyvale, CA 94085 Overview:
This workshop is designed as a first step in understanding what lighting is best for your preferred area of interest. The course takes place in a professional studio with strobe and tungsten lighting. Students will get a broad overview of how different lighting systems work and which style is best for specific subjects. Who is this class for?
If you’ve thought about shooting with lighting, but have little or no experience with it, this is the perfect class for you. If you’ve already purchased some lighting but you’re not getting the most out of it, you’ll get a lot of knowledge from the demonstrations. If you’ve wondered why some shots have gorgeous lighting and others look unprofessional, you’re questions will be answered in this class. If you want to set up a modest studio in your home, this workshop is a must!
