Learn how to get great portraits using the same techniques that top pros use. The workshop is a very organized combination of lecture, studio demonstrations and outdoor shooting. After this workshop your people pictures will be categorized into two distinct groups: Before the Portrait Workshop and After the Portrait Workshop. No kidding. By the end of the workshop students will be able to do the following:

1. Identify and set up the five basic lighting patterns common to all professional portraits.
2. Understand what a lighting ratio is and how to use that knowledge to control contrast.
3. Have a basic understanding of what studio lights do and where to get good deals.
4. How to get professional results with very little equipment - indoors and outdoors.
5. How to pose a subject (children, spouses, models, etc.) to obtain a professional result.
6. Choose which lighting to use for certain types of subjects to enhance their best features.
7. Get good photos in the most challenging situations, when other photographers can't.
8. How to set up a 'field studio' in minutes and get professional pictures on location or home.
9. Adjust the lighting so your consumer level camera will produce great shots on automatic.

What students say about Jeff's workshops:

"Jeff is an experienced photographer, and a really good instructor too. The workshop I took from him was very informative and hands-on, and I learned a bundle." - Chris Ryan, Organizer of Santa Cruz Photo group

"I was really impressed by your lighting workshop. I learned so much.
All the techniques you discussed were really interesting, and you could see them work right in front of you. I had no idea you could do so much with light. I didn't realize you could train yourself to recognize differences in needed lighting. Thanks A lot!!" - Lucian Gregg, San Francisco State Student studying Drama and Stagecraft

"I was expecting to learn about taking good portraits and that's the information I got from the class. I actually got more than I expected in that I could walk away from the class and immediately apply what I learned about lighting." - Theresa H

"I've taken two other classes on studio lighting and read several books on the topic. I have my own studio lights and work with them often. While all of these experiences have been helpful, nothing has given me as much good, solid information in so little time as Jeff's class. He unravelled mysteries that other instructors never touched. Highly recommended!" Marcia Q - uses photography occasionally at work.
