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.

Great class for photographers new to the studio, whether you have past experience (even a lot of it!) in shooting outdoors/available light, or are just starting out shooting at all.

Do you know how to turn your overexposure warning on, and WHY you want to?
Do you know what that black bar is across half your frame?
Do you know why you can't use auto exposure settings when shooting with strobe lights?
You will know and understand the hows and whys of these topics and many more after this class!

Since Feb 2011, participants have been exiting this class saying one thing over and over again: "I didn't have any idea I would learn SO much!"

Learn on our gear, but the idea is that you'll learn what functions and settings to look for on any lights, even if they aren't in the same place.
