3 Light portraiture

Learn how to use three lights for a beautiful portraiture.  

Use the speedlights and/or studio lights to setup three light portraiture (e.g., Key Light, Fill Light and Hair Highlight).  Experiment with different light modifiers (e.g., bounce umbrella, shoot-through umbrella, bare flash, softbox, etc), gels and light ratios to achieve the desired look.

We will be using a radio trigger plus optical slave or just optical slave using the built in camera pop-up flash.

This is a hands-on meet-up.  We will model for each other during the shoot.

I will have the lights and radio triggers available for you to use.  You can bring your own lights if you want to experiment with your own gear.

    I had to cancel because of Friday night Football but I need to get your trigger and receivers to you Skip. I purchased some they work great for the flash system I use!

    I'm sad that a conflict has come up and I'll have to drop out. Hope it is repeated.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
