A reminder for those of you who live in the Toronto area and who want to learn all about flash and creative light: the last ever Mono workshop is on Saturday, 23 April, and there are just two spots left.
This workshop, in the country home I am leaving at the end of this month, teaches you first the technical points, and then Joseph Marranca and I help you put those into practice. So you will learn – plus you go back with actual portfolio shots that you have made – like these, from previous workshops:
All of these were shot “as is”, and minimal processing has been done. The shots were made in the camera, not in post. The one thing they have in common is that they use creative light.
Smoke machine, gels, white balance: all doable once you know how.
That was a “broad daylight” shot, above. Shot with just speedlights. Yup, that is what creative light can do.
Cross lighting – wonderful, no?
Looks photoshopped? Nope. Just exposed well and lit well. Simple once you know, and that is what these workshops are all about.
The shot above was another daylight shot, nice day, no rain – but as it happens, we had a garden hose.
We have shot Hummers, Horses, and indeed also a Harley:
Those are just a few of the shots we did in past workshops – and Saturday’s will be a very special one. Think “wakeboarder” and “green screen”.
If you have always wanted to learn flash and then learn how to apply it both practically and creatively, book now and come to Mono.
Of course we will do more workshops going forward, but they will no longer be in Mono – one of the most amazing settings you will ever shoot in. Two spots left, and we will not allow more in, since the student-teacher ratio is very important to us. This is not a “20 people, one instructor” workshop (rather, it is “no more than 10 students, and two pro instructors”).
See you Saturday – and others, you will see a few shots here later.
