Pro Store and on location
Breaking the perception that location lighting has to be difficult, inconvenient, or compromised in its quality. This hands-on workshop provides the tools necessary to create unique and personalized images shot in parks, on city streets, at sports arenas, in workplaces, or in a client’s home or office. With an overview of equipment and a discussion on the essential tools for a shoot, this workshop walks you through the creation of dozens of location images — from casual head-shots to full-length, formally posed portraits. With strategies for meeting lighting challenges found outside the studio — from evaluating existing light to modifying or supplementing light as needed. This workshop will help you shoot confidently by developing a plan for creating professional-quality location portraits.
