Advanced Lighting Patterns Workshop - Adorama
February 23, 2019 - New York

Lighting can be a frustrating experience for newbies to studio work because while it is one of the most important tools for creating the image, it's not the only thing to think about and control during a photo shoot. There's also the direction to a creative team, creating the set, posing and directing the subject or model, composing the frame, scanning the subject or model for any necessary hair/makeup/wardrobe adjustments and capturing the image (occasionally reviewing the images if you tether while shooting). Within the lighting task there's not only deciding on how many lights and positioning them to achieve the result you're looking for but balancing the power as well. Once you get a good amount of practice under your belt, all of these things WILL begin to come second nature to you, and then the fun begins! During this workshop, we will cover several more lighting patterns to help you capture more interesting and creatively lit images. We will have a model for this workshop and it will include lecture, demo and "boot-camp style" hands-on practice so be sure to bring your camera and camera USB cord for tethering to Adobe Lightroom.
