Location Lighting Workshop

Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23 • 10:00am-5:00pm • Classroom in Glazer's Rentals

Join award-winning photographer Rick Friedman for a two-day, hands-on Location Lighting Workshop™.  This intensive and interactive seminar is designed for creative, portrait, documentary, corporate/event photographers and photojournalists, who desire to improve their knowledge of lighting. 

Rick has taught this workshop in 10 cities across the country over the past year.  Come join us for a couple of days of fun and creativity.

This seminar commences with ways to create wonderful light by using a single Speedlight and then proceeds to using multiple strobes.  Participants work on creating images with a mixture of strobe and ambient light.  The workshop exercises include

  • correcting
  • adding
  • controlling color
  • creating shadow
  • background for image authenticity

The class discusses the multiple options available by using various types of light modifiers: soft boxes, umbrellas, light panels, screens, grids, snoots, reflectors, gobos and barn doors.   The participants will work with different ways to trigger strobe, speedllight, studio light, and learn how to create light to enhance their vision. Rick will also cover the essentials of building your own gaffer kit. This class explains both Nikon and Canon systems.

Rick will also be available for portfolio reviews, so please bring up to 15 images.
