This event is being co-hosted in with Shutter Buds.
This event is designed to introduce you to portrait and fashion lighting using a variety of techniques. During this event you will be introduced to the three different lighting choices available to photographers; continuous lights, portable speedlights and study flashes. Each have their benefits and drawbacks and you will be able to experience some of this at this event.
There will be several lectures throughout the day to give you ideas on lighting setups, working with a subject/model and general studio procedures. By the end of the day you will have a sense of what can be done with the various setups and how you can use that in your own personal work.

WHAT TO BRING:
We are providing all the light setups and models, you just need to bring your camera. Since this is a portrait shooting event a good portrait lens is suggested. A portrait lens is any lens that lies in the[masked]mm range (depending on sensor size) where 80, 100 and 120mm are the most commonly used lengths.
Don't forget freshly charged batteries and plenty of memory cards. This is a full day event with very little opportunity to charge batteries. Make sure you come prepared.
The Hawthorne Inn has a restaurant on premisses but we may not have the time for a full sit down lunch. They have also asked that we do not bring outside food into the event space. There is a Subway down the street. The best bet will be to make or buy your lunch ahead of time and bring it with you. You can eat out in the parking area or travel a short distance to a small picnic area. Just keep in mind that you will need to go outside the building for lunch.
It's a bit of an inconvenience but we have to abide by the Hawthorne's rules. If you bring your own make sure you store it so it remains safe and cool until it's time to eat.
Water will be readily available throughout the day.
PLEASE NOTE: This is in conjunction with Sue Fenton and Shutter Buds. If you are a member of Shutter Buds and you have already signed up there do not sign up here also. You will be charged twice if you do so.
I am accepting PayPal for payment but if you would rather pay through Amazon you can do so at Shutter Buds.
SEE YOU SUNDAY...
