One Day Workshop

Saturday, April 22 | 10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Sometimes, we can't always schedule a photo shoot at the perfect time of day. Sometimes we find a location that is perfect for a portrait but the lighting isn't right. In this 3-hour intensive workshop, we will work in various locations balancing multiple light sources to photograph a model to create stunning portraits. Locations will vary from underground parking garage to an industrial backdrop. And you will learn how to shoot combining natural light, reflectors, on and off camera flash and also continuous LED lights. You will come away with a better knowledge of where and how to meter for different light sources, color balance and how to utilize the location and posing for a creative portrait. This is a hands on class, so bring your camera gear!

Michael Barone has been a professional photographer and artist for almost 40 years after receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in photography from the University of Delaware. Barone approaches each photograph as an expression of artistic excellence. He is not only a commercial photographer but an award-winning artist who believes that the best images come from understanding the subject and seeing what others do not. His work has been shown internationally, had multiple one-man exhibitions, and has also published two books of his work. Over his career, Barone has photographed the human form in all its beauty and sensuality, showing a depth of emotion that brings the subject to life. Commercially, Barone uses his artistic training and the tools of modern photography to create work that meets his exacting artistic standards and satisfies the needs of his clients. He uses not only a camera, but Adobe Photoshop, creative darkroom techniques, and other post-production plug-ins to enhance and create images that transcend the basics. He is now a resident of the Lehigh Valley and besides fine art photography, Michael specializes in commercial, portraits, and product photography.
