Learn to light like a Pro! We’ll spend a lot of time learning how light works and how to get consistent results with your flash photography. You’ll leave this workshop knowing how to use your flash off camera and how to consistently achieve the results you want. You’ll be able to confidently produce studio quality lit portraits in any environment that you encounter on location.
A Small Strobes, Big Results workshop is a hands-on experience, participants will have the opportunity to shoot each of the lighting demos as well as the lighting set-ups with their own cameras during the workshop. Lighting demos are a wonderful way to build a catalog of lighting effects that you can draw on for future reference.

You`ll learn how to use a single strobe combined with existing light as well as more complicated multiple light set-ups;
