"Had a great time! Wang is a class act with the technical expertise to back it up. The models were as professional as they were beautiful. Everyone in this group was really great and really helpful. Hope all the workshops I am planning to attend in the future are as good."

Dave Wells

"Exciting with loads of fun!!"

Robert Bennett

"Great models. Well organized."

Configuration of lights:

You will have a chance to setup the lights with different lighting configuration as to how to positioning the lights for the best photo outcome for that shot!

How to use one to three point lighting configurations to light your model to have the most flattering light to make your photos POP!  The photographer can illuminate the shot's subject (such as a person) however desired, while also controlling (or eliminating entirely) the shading and shadows produced by direct lighting.

Find out the secret to creating the most flattering light during this workshop!

Here's what some of the previous attendees said about the workshops:


"Excellent workshop! Wang and his staff devoted time during the lecture and plenty of hands-on assistance to quickly get beginners up to speed and help get the shot. Rotating the small groups across 4 sets also ensured that we were given time to work with all of the models. I especially liked the small photographer-to-model ratio and the staff's willingness to jump in and help answer questions."

Randy Nolta "Great meetup as always. Wang does a fantastic jobbringing beautiful professional models into a fun and friendly shooting environment. I'd really recommend Wang's meetups to anyone who is looking to improve their photography. At these meetup's you'll meet greatphotographers, models, makeup artists, and wardrobe artists. Thanks again Wang."

Clarence Alford "Good event. The models were great and beautiful. Host (Wang) was fantastic."

Sammy Z. "Fun and respectful photographers, beautiful and creative models, and a fun atmosphere all together."

Shape the light:

We will be showing how to setup studio lights to shoot beauty, fashion, drama, and edgy just with changing from 3 point lighting to 1 point lighting.  We'll show the different types of setup.

As an example, this is a beauty setup with 3 point lighting to shoot only beauty.

Advanced lighting techniques for outdoor(if it's not raining):

Many of the pro have stated not to shoot during high noon due to harsh shadows and models usually have a hard time keeping their eyes opened.  

Many of us don't have the luxury to shoot on magic hours like sunrise and sunset.  As many of you know Wang, he has been shooting high noon quite a few years and still have awesome images.  After going though the first 3 module which will give you a solid foundation of studio lighting, he will demonstrate his outdoor lighting techniques.

Here's the result from Randy who took this awesome shot!  It's not your traditional beauty shot but Randy added his own version.

After taking this workshop you will be able to walk into a studio setting up lighting, shooting models, and editing photos like an expert as you can imagine.  This workshop will take you to the next level of photography that you have been seeking.  Sign Up Now, before it's all full.
