Portrait and Fashion Outdoor Lighting Workshop at the Japanese Friendship Garden

Creating Rembrandt and Fashion Beauty Lighting in an Outdoor Setting:

In this Lighting Workshop, we will be focusing on creating Beauty and Fashion Outdoor Portraiture. You will learn how to select the backdrop setting, and pose our models for Beauty and Fashion in the style of high end clothing store posters. You will learn to custom design the lighting environment with reflectors, diffusers and OCF (off camera flash).

To accomplish this, we will be utilizing reflectors, diffusers and a special Light Sandwich concept with three low cost speed lights assembled in an Umbrella/Reflector combo to produce studio quality illumination in full sunlight. Discover how this approach is possible, how it can extend your lighting possibilities and how you can create it, for less than the cost of one OEM Speed light.

We will also be including, in depth instruction in basic lighting concepts and advanced techniques for outdoor portraiture with the use of reflectors, diffusers and off camera flash, so you can learn to light under all conditions.

Certificate of Completion:

For this and all upcoming Workshops, I will now be including Certificates of Completion for all attending Photographers, upon the submission of their artistically enhanced images from the Workshops. These images are for the benefit of our Models and a recognition of your application of the techniques presented.

Garden Setting:

The Japanese Friendship Garden provides a diverse setting for beautiful portrait photography. Our experienced models will work with you to help you achieve the look you want to capture. Soft, Fashion, expressive.

Lighting Direction and Portrait Patterns:

We will begin the Workshop exploring the direction of light to create beautiful portraits, using reflectors, diffusers and small flash units.

Portable Lighting Kit:

We will demonstrate a newly designed portable lighting kit which requires no cords or battery packs, yet produces studio quality light, perfect for location portraiture, indoors or out. And of course, the aforementioned Light Sandwich.
