Available Dates

There are currently no upcoming classes.

After a brief introduction, slide show, and Q&A session, Bob will demonstrate the following techniques:

* One light and multiple light set-ups
* Mixing different light sources – Studio Strobes, Constant Lights and Speedlights
* Mixing on-camera with off-camera flash
* Flash modification using reflectors, grids, snoots, and bounce cards
* Figuring out exposure: Aperture, Shutter, ISO, and flash output
* Gelling your lights for effect and color correction

Come and shoot with a model to put these techniques to the test!

 

 
Bob will be focusing on the Rogue XL Pro Lighting Kit and he really loves the Rogue Grid too.  
 
Rogue XL Pro Lighting Kit:  In Studio or on location, the Rogue XL Pro Lighting Kit gives photographers creative lighting control using speedlights, making a variable width strip box, a low profile soft box, or a multi-surface reflector.  This durable, compact system of flash modifers packs flat and takes up very little room in a gear bag.
 
 
 
Rogue 3-in-1 Honeycomb Grid:  The Rogue Grid uses a system of compact stacking honeycomb grids to create 3 degrees of spotlighting control for your speedlight.  A honeycomb grid is used to create a spot of light with a gradual fall-off useful for adding dimension and depth to an image, or for highlighting important features. The Rogue Grid securely attaches to most standard shoe mount flashes using the included adjustable tension strap. 

Don't miss this opportunity to get first hand instruction and apply these skills alongside a working professional.
