Photographer information:
This will be a intermediate level photo shoot, however I am willing to include a limited number of beginners. We will be attempting to make some creative images using colored gels and off camera lights, but this isn't the easiest concept to do well.

I recommend a minimum of two lights to create good images. I am including a couple of example set ups in the photo sections to provide ideas. I will make available some colored gels suitable for use with standard speedlights. We will be working in pairs. If the photographers can work together and have similar lighting systems (triggers) then the number of lights that each photographer will need to provide may be reduced. Photographers please indicate your trigger/lighting system so we can pair up photographers appropriately.

We should should have room for about 4 stations (~8 photographers) especially if we plan for portrait or 3/4 length images. A backdrop is not required, however I recommend one.

I will be setting up one station complete with backdrop and about 4 lights (studio plus speedlights) that will work with the Yongnuo 603/605 trigger system. I will have some Canon and Nikon triggers available for use. I will be sharing my station with up to 2 beginner photographers that may not have lights for this shoot.

The other photographers will need to set up their own stations. I may bring along an extra backdrop stand and cloth backdrop if someone needs to borrow them. We will have access to the studio from 5:30 until 8:30 in order to allow some extra time to set up and pack up.

We will renting the entire the studio. I will be limiting this to 8 other photographers and 5 models.

I am asking for 24 hours notice prior to start of the event if you intend to cancel for a full refund. This will give me some time to attempt to get a replacement photographer should you not be able to attend.

Photographers, please post a least 2 photos of each model within two weeks of this event.
