Portrait Lighting 102 - Balancing Act On Location

This four (4) hour (+ Lunch Break) studio and location workshop is a continuation of the "Basic Lighting 101" workshop. In this session, we will take the information that we covered and put it into practical usage.

We will cover the basic principles of choosing a location, design, posing, and lighting the subject both for indoor and outdoor scenarios. The focus of this workshop will be for the lighting of the two basic portraiture lighting methods covered in the "Basic Lighting 101" workshop, and a live model will be used to help in demonstrating these principles.

We will use one studio/hand held strobe and accessories that will allow us to explore and control the quality of light, reflected lighting, and diffused lighting. This workshop will also cover the mixed use of lighting with both natural light and strobe lighting.
