On September the 7th and 8th Bert Stephani will be giving a 2-day Portrait Lighting workshop in London, England.
On Monday, we’ll start out by going over the basics of light. We’re going to learn to recognize good light and shape bad light into good light.
In the afternoon we are going to learn how to MAKE the light with small flashes and mix ambient light with flash.
Bert will also discuss equipment choices and will squeeze in lots of tricks of the trade. With lots of real life examples and mini-shoots, we’ll make the theoretical part easy to digest.
On Tuesday, you’ll get the chance to put everything you’ve learned into practice on a location shooting day. You’ll get some fun assignments, that you will work on in small groups under Bert’s guidance.
You don’t need any experience with flash, tons of expensive gear or a degree in photography to benefit from this workshop. The motivation to improve your photography, is all you need.
The main focus on the workshop days will be lighting, but you can ask any questions you like, from technical to the business of photography.
Those attending will get the chance to win a California Sunbounce Micro-Mini (rrp £120) during the workshop
Everyone who comes will also receive a small pack of colour correction gels big enough to fit their hotshoe flashes
