Before you can get creative in the studio environment, you'll need to have a basic comfort level with the lighting and equipment you'll be using to shape your shots. This class is designed to meet that goal, whether you're coming into the studio just starting in photography, or having previous experience shooting outdoors/in available light.
This class presents detailed fundamentals of the controls and features of studio strobes and wireless flash sync triggers, how they interface with your camera, and what camera settings and functions you need to know and use for shooting in manual mode in the studio.
The classes will be presented/demonstrated using D. M. Gremlin Studios' complement of AlienBees strobe lights and Pocket Wizard wireless transceivers. However, the information covered applies to a wide range of studio lighting equipment, whether you're shooting here or elsewhere.
