    Had great fun at the event. I learned some things I didn't know before. I have been doing this for 10+ years and you can always learn something new to improve and develop your own personal style and technique.

    This is a great setting for learning. It was nice to experiment with both outdoor natural lighting and different strobe light configurations, as well as having classroom training. Thanks Max and Brian for providing access to 3 different scenarios in one free event. Your time and effort is much appreciated. The West Valley facilities and the flexibility of the instructors makes for a terrific educational environment. The upcoming classes should be a good investment for anyone looking to learn or improve their photo skills.

    Hi Brian. I have to get out by 10:30AM (alma mater reunion :-|). Is it possible to get the summary of the lighting setups at the beginning of the class. Thanks for the understanding.

      Hmm I guess so, but this event is really to advertize the classes we offer at West Valley College. The hope is that you find our facility and content compelling enough to inspire you to sign up for a class. We won't be recording the event ourselves

    • Julio W.

      Umm, are these community classes or real college classes ? Can you give us a way to find out about them other than attending (I'm in LA until the 1st) ?

    I want to learn and share ideas about portrait photography, this meetup sounds perfect.

    I meant to add, I am especially interested in the photoshop (or lightroom) tips. I have been experimenting with PS quite a bit and I can't quite get the portrait results I am striving for.

    I am looking forward to this. Personally, I would rather we saved dogs and other pets for some other time and maximized learning about glamorizing people.

    OK on no nudes, I'll wear my clothes! ;-)

    Idea from Left Field Number 5,842: Would it be possible for someone, not me, to bring a dog to the event to practice Glamour Dog Portraits?

    July 26, 2013

  • Dave B.

    Any chance you could demo a single speedlite set-up, too?

    July 26, 2013

  • Brian T.

    Looking forward to the workshop tomorrow. I just want to remind you all that this is not a Nude or Boudoir Workshop. We will be focusing on making the models look glamorous! Bring your cameras!
    Parking is free because of the Farmers Market Saturday mornings.

    • Robert L.

      Will there be strobes set up? Will we need sync cords or pocket wizards if so?

      July 26, 2013

    • Brian T.

      yes on the strobes and we have pocket wizards, its a big crowd but we will have several setups

      July 26, 2013

  • Kwantani

    what camera and gears we should bring to the session?

    July 23, 2013

    • Brian T.

      A body and a kit type zoom will be fine

      July 26, 2013

  • Robert E.
