This workshop begins with ways to create wonderful light using a single Speedlite then build on that knowledge by adding a second then third Speedlight and eventually progressing to using studio strobes.

Topics Include:
• Multiple light situations
• Balancing available light with strobes
• Mixing speed lights with studio strobes as well as determining when Speedlights are really the better option
• The correct way to do color balances, color correction, cross filtering and adding and controlling color in your photographs

Students will work with many different types of light modifiers and see the effects of soft boxes, umbrellas, light panels, screens, grids, snoots, reflectors, gobos and barn doors. You will learn how to create lighting for different types of portraits and lighting situations, both indoors and outside.

Friedman will also explain the various ways to fire strobes, how to create your own light modifiers and cover the essentials of building your own gaffer’s kit. He will also be available for portfolio reviews, so please bring up to 15 images.
