Quotes
"Learned a lot from the previous workshop. Amazing how knowing and using the right lighting makes a big difference! Thanks Karl and Drew!" - Field Photo 1571050

"Karl and Drew's workshop is designed for photographers who want to refine their technical lighting skills. Karl spends individual time with each of the participant to review the images and lets them know what could be improved.I left the workshop with a greater awareness of how to shoot the models in connection with light and color. Thank you Karl and Drew!!" - Naira Photography 1665452


For new photographers who want to attend our workshop
• We're here to share our tips to beginning photographers.
• Ever wonder how Drew and I light our models without the background being blown out on a sunny day? Speed lights not cutting it huh? sad We will give you hands on experience in using affordable and portable mono strobe lights and equipment. Try Before You Buy. smile
• You'll be so impressed with your images after the event that you'll be ready to order the same lighting equipment we use.
• We'll show you different light modifiers and their uses. Octobox, Octodome, beauty dish and grids will be covered. You'll also get to see the new High Output Beauty Dish (HOBD) in action.
• Circular Polarizer and ND (neutral density) filters will be discussed and how it will improve your images when shooting outdoors or at the beach. I recommend Hoya brand.
• Once you attend our workshop, you'll be able to build up your port with beautiful models quickly.
• Students can take the remainder of day to shoot models.

Preperations:
• To make use of the workshop, CyberSyncs or Pocket Wizards are recommended. You can rent the PW's from Calumet or Samy's if needed. If the Pocket Wizards are unavailable to rent, you may rent the CyberSyncs or Pocket Wizards from Drew and I. Limited availability.
• Students should have prior knowledge on how to adjust their camera in manual mode. You'll need to know how to adjust aperture, shutter speed and ISO.

Don't care about the workshop?
• For photographers who don't care about the workshop, they can shoot the available models for the group shoot portion. (Please note that the workshop will be using Channel 1 and 2 on the Pocket Wizards. On the CyberSyncs we'll reserve Channel 1 and 2 also, if needed)
• Shoot beautiful models all day long.
• Please be courteous, if you're going to set up your lighting equipment at a awesome location, to either share or move locations every 1/2 hour.


Hire models after the event for 1 on 1 shoots at 1/2 hour increments

ok. I took photos of the location but I was not the best landscape photographer so I hope they will suffice. We could use the pool for bikini shots. There will be a Lambo for us to use to shoot. We will wash an SL500.

There will be barbeque ribs, hotdogs, and hamburgers. Maybe more if I get in the mood to prepare food.

There will be valet parking. For free of course. Dang!

It was an innocent kiss for the camera, Everyone.  Not that I don't luv you Dan, but the truth needs to be told.  wink

On a side note, Dan, your picture of me in the field was so well done that everyone thinks it's a fake background....  hehe.
