Back to Basics ....Time to get back in the studio....



 Time to get back to basics and hit the studio. Join me and see the new studio that Zsa'nee Gaines has so gracially opened to members on a limited basis.. Hope everyone had a great summer..

. I will add models as photographers sign up..

If you have thought you might want to even use your own speedlights in the studio... bring em and we can do that too 

These workshops are to familiarize beginning photographers with studio lighting basics. If you are thinking about buying lights for your own use.. this is the perfect way to get some ideas of what you might want to go.. It is not a classroom setting.. we go over my hand out on settings etc.. then we have some fun learning about how it all ties together.It will cover camera basics for studio work. What mode to shoot in, shutter speeds, white balance, aperture, etc.

Once again this will be for beginners who have little or no experience with studio lighting. If you just want a refresher or are starting off in studio.. these are a great way to kick start your images into high gear using lights . We will be using strobe lighting.. If you prefer to use continuous lights we can set you up with that as well !!


This is a hands on group... I will help you set up initially, explain the lights.. but by the time you leave the studio... I want YOU to be able to do your own set up...... that is the goal of these workshops...

If you have someone you would like to bring along as your own model... let me know and we will make it happen !!

Please be prepared to let the models have access to a copy of  a few of your best shots in a high resolution files without watermarks !! They can be uploaded here to the site for the models to download.
