    Michael Downey
    Skill Level:
    Everyone

    This class will go over the essentials of white-balance and composition. Learn how to analyze the color temperature of light and how it affects your photographs. Your DSLR camera won't always be able to accurately reproduce colors which is where proper white-balancing comes into play.

    Getting Started with Studio Lighting with Joe Brady
    Instructor:
    Joe Brady
    Skill Level:
    Everyone

    Portable speed light flash units are great tools, but when you need to shoot fast and take a lot of shots or when you want to use big light shapers for the soft, flattering, beautiful light they produce, then it’s time to move to studio strobes. Join host Joe Brady as he takes you from the basics of studio lighting through one, two, three and four light portrait sets so you can see how to build the most beautiful light for your subjects. Understanding how to create shape and dimension with light is what separates “OK” portraits from great results! This small group workshop includes both classroom and hands-on shooting with a model using your own camera.

    Joe will cover:
    • Introduction to the gear of Studio Strobes
    • Choosing and using light shapers
    • When and how to use a light meter
    • Creating light ratios
    • Posing individuals, couples and small groups

    *Limited to 10 students. Register early!

    Michael Downey
    Skill Level:
    Everyone

    This class takes place at our HOBOKEN location. If you want to register for the class at Fairfield, click here.

    You have a digital camera and you know that the images are going to be far superior to the ones captured by your point-and-shoot camera, but maybe you're not sure how that happens.  This class is for beginners to amateur photographers looking to gain a better understanding of the automated modes and features, as well as the manual control and capabilities, of your digital SLR or mirrorless camera.

    Get instruction on the importance of understanding the fundamentals (such as depth of field, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, metering, white balance, reading histograms, on camera flashes, lenses) and how they will affect your photos!

    In the second half of the class, the students will work with their cameras and apply what they have learned.  The buttons and settings will be much easier to manipulate and each student will have develop the ability to capture the images closer to their vision.

    *Please note that this class is NOT for point-and-shoot cameras.
