One Day Workshop

Saturday, October 30 | 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

In this three-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to use simple lighting to create headshots that are flattering and powerful. Michael will go over easy to understand lighting techniques that can take your headshots from drab to dynamic. A variety of lighting set ups will be explained from a clam shell to butterfly lighting. Also, Michael will show you simple ways to communicate with your subject and get them comfortable and help bring out the best they can be. The last part of the workshop you’ll be able to work with the model with Michael’s help to get a better understanding of these simple, yet effective techniques.
