SEMINAR (11:30AM-1:30PM): Anyone can see the difference between a "snap shot" and a carefully crafted photograph but can you describe what makes them different? In this workshop we'll break down the characteristics of light and composition, so that you'll walk away with the ability to communicate, control and create great shots on our own. Starting with lens selection and framing, we'll move on to seeing light, and finally how to create & shape that light with small flash.
WORKSHOP (2:00PM-5:00PM): Erik is known for traveling light and producing impressive results, with minimal gear. He realized early on that speedlights are an impressive light source in a small package, allowing you to get great results without the added cost and weight of larger studio strobes. This doesn't mean you have to sacrifice that "studio quality" of light either. During this workshop Erik will share the tips, techniques and equipment necessary to maximize your speedlight's potential as well as your overall understanding and control of light. This will prepare you to produce professional looking light, on your very next shoot, whether indoors or out on location. After the presentation attendees will break into small groups and with Erik's guidance, and the help of beautiful models, will experiment with the different lighting set-ups, light modifiers, and the lighting techniques you just learned. Speedlights offer a compact solution allowing you to take light with you wherever you go. Once you understand their potential, you can use speedlights to enhance your images and the overall quality of your photography with ease. Make sure to bring you camera, memory card, and favorite lenses to take full advantage of the shooting potion of this event.
