What you’ll Learn

Have you wanted to try using studio lighting but felt intimidated by the technology, the heat, or just the frustration of trying to figure it all out? Now you can take photographs in the comfort of your own home - whether you're using a compact camera, DSLR, or even a smartphone. Let professional photographer, author, and educator, Erin Manning, help you learn the basics about taking great pictures and video with daylight balanced, constant lights.

 

Session 1 – Instructional Seminar

You'll walk away feeling inspired and confident about the essentials for creating professional-looking portraits - and your friends will be asking you how you did it!

 

Learn how to:

  • Set up and use daylight-balanced studio lighting
  • 
Get the most out of collapsible reflectors & soft-boxes
  • 
Work with your subjects to capture authentic personalities
  • 
Manipulate and control the light to evoke a mood
 

 

Session 2: Hands on Workshop

Join Erin after the seminar for a special hands-on workshop with a group of no more than 15 people and put what you learned in the morning seminar to practical use with this unique photo shoot with live models!

 

This workshop features full studio lighting set-ups, with models, so you can capture images with your own camera. Erin will help you create beautiful portraits and video by teaching you how to create different lighting patterns and how to use those patterns to bring out the authentic personality of your subject. She will also step you through critical subjects like lens selection, backgrounds, light modifiers, tripod use, exposure control and posing techniques.

 

Don’t miss this opportunity to work like a pro, with a pro and go home with images that will take your portrait photography
