Just so there is no confusion. This in in addition to the already scheduled shoot with Bell April 19th. That shoot sold out in two days so I added this one to the schedule.
I'm also experimenting with the format for the sole purpose of getting the best possible atmosphere , lighting and opportunities for the members.
This is my own studio with two SP Sysytems Excalibur 3600 lights with umbrellas, snoots and grids, two 24 inch softboxes, two 12 inch softboxes and a hairlight. I have white, black, red, brown, blue and green paper backdrops. I have a platform that can be covered in paper to match the background or covered with sheets and curtains in the background to make a bedroom scene, venetian blinds that can be used in numerous ways and several chairs. All available for your use. We can set up glamour lighting move all of the softboxes to one side for a wall of light and a new style I just started using where you have dramatic lighting from the side of the model to light the figure and then direct a snoot toward the models face to light it separately
This format is going to be one hour per photographer with no one in the background shooting. You can shoot what you want and how you want (subject to Bell's approval). And I'll set up the lights as you direct or give help if you need it. For Nikon users I already have the software so that each shot can go to a twenty inch monitor so you can see how the light falls and make adjustments and I plan to have the same for Canon users. Bring your cable that goes from the camera to the USB.
If we have 4 hours scheduled then you'll come a little early for your hour and be ready to go when it's your turn. First to sign up will get first choice of time slot. 11 am, Noon, 1 pm 2 pm 3 pm etc.
Sign up early for Bell. Available spots go quickly with our new format.
