Join Bobbi Lane and Lee Varis in the loading dock for a fun shoot with our Camera Show models! Learn techniques for balancing light as you shoot with strobes on the models and LED lights on the backgrounds. The strobes on the subject will "freeze" them while the background light can be blurred by shaking, spinning, and zooming the camera with a long exposure. Bobbi and Lee help you shoot these interesting and creative techniques!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars.

Bobbi is an excellent instructor! She uses very simple and understandable language to explain all technical nuances. But when the practice time comes she becomes, Oh Boy, it gets even better: no one left behind! She and Lee give everyone as much attention as needed to get excellent results, patiently working on exposure, framing/composition, timing… and everything around! I can’t believe you can get this kind of education for the cost of two cups of coffee! Thank you Bobbi, Lee, and UniquePhoto for this rare opportunity!
