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.

Still offering these sessions - can schedule with individuals or small groups up to four people, at any mutually available date/time!
We also have TWO spots left in the Mar 27 Lighting Practice Session, for those who know the basics of strobes and camera settings and need more practice time to get more comfortable setting things up and trying things out.

SOooo many people book the studio for the first time without having any idea how to set their camera properly for shooting with strobes, or how the lights or triggers work. This class is set up specifically to teach all of that so you're ready to come in and shoot when you book with your models and clients! Way better preparation than the 5 minute run through that comes with studio rental otherwise!

Do you know what your maximum sync speed is, and why?
Do you know what your histogram is showing you?
Do you know whether your overexposure warning is on, and why it SHOULD be?
All these topics and much, much more, covered in this class!
