One Light

Zack Arias | Lighting - Confident Beginner

This workshop breaks down the complex world of lighting into essential elements we can understand and employ in practical, day-to-day shooting.

This workshop is no 9am to 5pm presentation of pretty pictures telling you what f-stop and shutter speed were used to make them. You will not be instructed to follow your heart.  We will not “feel” the light.  We most definitely will not talk about the transcendental properties of light and shadow and make metaphors between the physical and metaphysical worlds.

During this workshops we will learn how:

 

  • To make creative and compelling portraits, wherever we are  and at any time of the day or night
  • Light works in its simplest form through mastering shooting with a single light source
  • Working with a single light can allow for amazing consistencey between shots
  • How light can give you control and versatility in both your shooting environment and the final product options you are able to deliver to your clients
  • To manage workflow & marketing

 

Allow the intimidation of flash photography to melt away. You will walk away from this workshop with the confidence and knowledge necessary to take control of your shoots. Imagine walking into any environment with a simple lighting rig confident that you will make great portraits you are proud to deliver because you understand light and how to use it.
