In this lively and indispensable workshop, you will learn how to work with Dynalite strobe lights, both as a main and as an accessory. This class will cover the big three of lighting: direction, quality and depth. Bobbi will take you step-by-step using various modifiers, such as umbrellas, softboxes, grids, and reflectors, to explain how to match lighting to your concept or the “look” that you desire. Technical considerations such as how to take accurate meter readings will be discussed and demonstrated. Working with a variety of models, you will gain valuable tips and practice on how to successfully pose your subject for headshots. This workshop, exploring the drama and magic of lighting, will set you on the path of using effective techniques for more dynamic portraits!
