â¢ Guest house has two bedrooms/showers and pool table room with fireplace.
â¢ Volley ball court with crushed granite
â¢ Tennis/basketball court
â¢ Pool and 2 Jacuzzis
â¢ Grotto and waterfall
â¢ Workout area
â¢ Putting Green
â¢ Game room
â¢ Outside shower
For new photographers who want to attend our workshop â¢ Learn to use lighting like the pros.
â¢ We're here to share our tips to beginning photographers.
â¢ 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? We will give you hands on experience in using affordable and portable mono strobe lights and equipment. Try Before You Buy.
â¢ You'll be so impressed with your images after the event that you'll be ready to order the same lighting equipment we use.
â¢ I'll show you different light modifiers and their uses. Octobox, beauty dish and grids will be covered. I'll discuss the difference between the silver BD and white BD. Why i use the BD over an Octobox at the beach or desert.
â¢ Circular Polarizer(CP)and Neutral Density(ND) filters will be discussed and how it will improve your images when shooting outdoors or at the beach. I recommend Hoya brand. CP, ND4 â¢ Once you attend our workshop, you'll be able to build up your port with beautiful models quickly.
â¢ Students can take the remainder of day to shoot models.
Preperations: â¢ To make use of the workshop, Pocket Wizards or Cyber Syncs are recommended. You can rent the PW's from Calumet or Samy's if needed. If the Pocket Wizards or Cyber Syncs are unavailable to rent, you may rent Pocket Wizards from Drew and I. Limited availability, don't assume we'll have enough PW's.
â¢ 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.
â¢ I recommend you purchase a CP, ND or both that i listed above. Purchase the appropriate diameter for your lens.
Don't care about the workshop? â¢ 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 on the Pocket Wizards. On the CyberSyncs we'll reserve Channel 9 also, if needed)
â¢ Shoot beautiful models all day long.
â¢ 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 Message the models and see if you can hire the model you want after the group event for 1 on 1 sessions.
