May 14th-15th, 10am-5pm • Hunt’s Melrose, MA
Recommended Prerequisite: Basic knowledge of cameras
Class Level: Beyond Basic
If you only have a weekend to learn about working with flashes, spend it with us! Join award-winning photographer Rick Friedman for his hands-on “Location Lighting Workshop™” May 14th and 15th from 10am to 5pm each day. This intensive and interactive seminar is designed for portrait, wedding, corporate and event photographers, photojournalists and serious amateurs who desire to improve their knowledge of lighting.
In this 2-day hands on workshop, we begin by creating interesting light with one speedlight on camera and then with a single speedlight off camera. The workshop progresses to using multiple lights and mixing speedlights with ambient light. On the second day of the workshop, we will be going off-site to shoot at a special location using multiple speedlights and portable studio strobes. We work with Flashbenders, soft boxes, strip lights, beauty dishes, grids, reflectors, gobos and other techniques to control light, create hairline lights and add color gels to your images. A model will also be employed for the Workshop Weekend. (Model fee and release is included in the ticket price.)
Rick will also be sharing his portable location lighting techniques that keep his clients coming back. As a working magazine photojournalist and corporate photographer, his approach is always practical, innovative, and most of the time, fits in his camera bag. Rick’s clients include: Time, Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, New York Times, der Spiegel, The Guardian and many other publications. Rick teaches with both Nikon and Canon strobes. There will be lots of equipment for attendees to use and discounted pricing on certain products. Rick is also the creator of the Rosco Location Lighting Kit.
Rick has taught this workshop in cities across the US and in the UK over the last 10 years.
