There are many light modifiers out there that can help us create the exact light we want in just about any situation. With these in your arsenal, and with a little creativity, you can bend light to your will and make your photos look just how you want.
In this weekend workshop, join photographer Miranda Penn Turin in a fun and creative workshop exploring the most versatile lighting modifiers available – their benefits, shortfalls and how to use them to your best advantage. Miranda will guide the class in two full days of shooting with various modifiers. The first day will be spent familiarizing the students with the effects of each modifier, and the second day will be focused on experimenting with a combination of them. We’ll discuss the reasons for choosing one lighting modifier over another, both as it pertains to a specific subject and environment, and how those choices will begin to define your own personal style. Students will be challenged to rethink all of their basic assumptions about lighting, and encouraged to push through their artistic boundaries.
Students will leave the workshop with a new creative lighting arsenal and a greater understanding of how to direct their subjects. All participants will have an opportunity to photograph models using each modifier, tethered to a digital capture station so they can view their results immediately on a large screen. There will be hair and makeup artists on set to prep the model for shooting. Students are encouraged (but not obligated) to bring anything they like in terms of props or clothes to include in photos. In addition, students should bring their own hard drives.
