Beyond the Expected Studio Lighting
Sunday 9AM - 10:30 AM 


Take fundamental lighting to an extreme place, break the mold of the expected and explode it into inspired and innovative imagery. While strong basic lighting skills are essential to every successful wedding and portrait photographer, an advanced understanding of unconventional lighting and the ability to create compelling work is paramount in any photographic artist's growth.

 

 

Drawing on his 34 years as an award winning international photographer and educator, and his understanding of the influences of a variety of artistic styles, Tim Meyer will advance your understanding of commonplace studio lighting equipment used in extraordinary ways and will expose you to the use of spotlights, ring flash, beauty dishes and more in this exciting, fast paced, information filled program.
