Shifting Gears II: Photographing Really Big Stuff

Shifting Gears II

Photographing Really Big Stuff. Register now for 1 of 2 days.

Sony and Profoto have joined forces to bring you a chance to learn about automotive photography in a big way. Sony Artisan of Imagery, Dennis Biela, will show you his techniques on how to light and photograph a car’s exterior and interior in the studio. Lighting is more than just “placing a light”, it’s also about controlling the highlights & shadows using light’s power to create a mood for that “rolling piece of art”. This 3 hour workshop covers not only lighting but also color management, how to work with models, and compose the subject to create that artistic view. During Dennis’s hands-on presentation, attendees will have ample opportunity to photograph the car and model with Dennis on hand to help them create their own stellar piece of art.

As an added bonus, Sony and Profoto will have a variety of their latest gear to loan out to the attendees to get the best photos. From Sony's A7 R II to Profoto's B1 Monologhts and Profoto's newly released Sony TTL Air Remote-check out what these two hot product lines have to offer! Local Sony Tech Representative, Barrett McGivney, will be on hand to answer all of your Sony questions and more!
