Knowing how to use artificial light creatively on location is an essential skill for most photographers. Similarly, lightweight and compact travel is also a necessity. David’s hands-on workshop is designed to address these challenges, as participants discover how to use small speedlights, or small strobes, to produce big results.

We learn to effectively control the light quality, direction, and shape from speedlights by incorporating soft boxes, grids, snoots, reflectors, color gels, and bounce techniques, for more professional results. Participants explore which lighting techniques are best suited to a particular subject and scene. Other topics covered include grip equipment for proper rigging, and packing and preparing for location assignments.

Mornings are devoted to lectures, demonstrations, and critiques; the remainder of the day is spent practicing lighting techniques in the studio and on location around Santa Fe. Participants leave this workshop with confidence in their new lighting skills and with a strong foundation for developing their own lighting techniques and style.

Looking for extended instruction and even more time in the studio? Consider coming in a few days early and combining this workshop with Terry Monahan's Intensive: Lighting and Small Studio Basics, March 1 - March 2.
