CANCELLED - Intro to Studio Lighting - 3 spots left, RSVP requires $15 PayPal

Introduction to Studio Lighting Workshop

We'll discuss and set up studio strobes and lighting modifiers such as softboxes, beauty dishes, reflectors, snoots, and grids.  Also, we'll discuss use of light meters and proper camera settings.

Note: cameras require a standard hotshoe for the wireless strobe trigger.


After makeup, hair, and lighting prep, we'll take turns shooting the models


Technically, this is a trade shoot - everyone works for free, collaborating to build portfolios.  We're limiting it to 8 photographers, plus the hosts.  The $120 goes to pay the studio.


Please PayPal $15 along with your meetup name to [masked] to be added to the RSVP list (this helps reduce no-shows).  Refunds only if the event is cancelled or rescheduled.  Event will be cancelled if we do not get 8 attendees to cover the $120 studio rental.

As a trade shoot, photographers will be required to provide high-resolution images for the models and makeup artist's portfolios.


Parking: street meters or pay lots - on S Hill St, 9th St, or S Olive St. approximately $5.

    • JJFotography

      Sharon, next time you're in DTLA, just drop off $15 or mail it to us. If the event's cancelled, I'll just mail it back. We just have to collect ahead of time so we don't have no-shows like most meetups.
