Portraiture Using Hot Lights (added session)

  • Feb 10, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The first Hot Lights session filled up so I scheduled this additional session on Feb 10th.


This 2 ½ hour workshop is about using hot lights to get dramatic portraits and editorial images.


The session begins with an overview of the 5 basic portrait lighting patterns and quickly moves on to hands-on use of many types of tungsten lights, often called ‘hot lights’. Both professional and inexpensive ‘hardware store’ lights will be demonstrated so you’ll get a good understanding of what equipment is needed for basic and advanced portraiture and editorial work. Bring your camera and tripod, because you’ll be shooting! By the end of this workshop you’ll know how to quickly set up your camera and lights for several types of shots. Fee: $35. Includes an instructional CD. Email me to reserve a spot. Advanced payment by check or PayPal will be required. Limited to10 students.

    Very good experience! 4 models showed up. The lighting was explained and demonstrated. Other attendees were helpful and courteous. Good time all around.

    Having four different models with varied lighting setups and backdrops made for a excellent class. Jeff's instruction plus take home CD made for a great value!

    Great to experience shooting with hot lights. I think a less free for all manner of shooting would be better giving each photographer a chance to shoot from the varying sweet spots and experience directing the models. Models were fabulous to work with and very willing to take direction.

    Also a base direction starting at the beginning about how to interact and give direction with models might be a good addition.

    Jeffery is a great instructor and hot lights are a topic that is not often covered. I certainly got some new insights out of this class!

    Peggy, I will bring one for you, although you probably don't really need it for the workshop. Sign up already - contact Jeffery directly, the RSVPs are currently closed.

    I would love to take this workshop, but I do not have a tripod yet. Does this studio have one I can use for the evening?

    The payment for the spot I put here is for my wife so she can join in shooting. We both do photography, but are interested in working more with hot lights potentially.
