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.

DETAILED fundamentals... even if you already have some knowledge of your camera and shooting in manual mode, you will come out of this class with a much better understanding of how strobe lights and your camera work together.

Do you know what your maximum sync speed is, and WHY?
What's that black bar across half your frame?
Why is your shot overexposed no matter how far you power down the lights?
These problems sound familiar? Come learn the basics of strobes and camera settings for the studio, and avoid these pitfalls and frustrations!

Ken, I still haven't heard from you regarding scheduling... love that you want to take the class, so drop me an email at the studio. Scheduling for studio events doesn't happen through MM.
