This workshop is tailor-made to anyone who is wanting to improve their lighting skills for senior photos as well as work inside a studio or on location with models. Sony Artisan Patrick Murphy-Racey will be starting at 9:30am with the basics, demonstrating various light modifiers, and then setting up a controlled lighting kit in a studio setting. We will break for lunch at 11:45am and then meet back at the studio for the next session. The second portion of the day we will take participants outside and set up another situation where HSS strobes will be used. PM-R will talk at length about lens selection, lighting, light modifiers, and how to find your personal vision for "the look" you want your work to have. Lighting is the key to making real money from shooting portraits and wedding work and it separates you from the pack. PM-R has shot over 700 assignments for Sports Illustrated and will show you how to work fast but keep your quality high.
