Magic of Umbrellas Workshop: Encore

The Magic of Umbrellas Workshop

There is a surprising number of lighting choices available for portrait photography including lightbanks aka softboxes and umbrellas. Are softboxes a requirement or necessary for today’s photographer? How much lighting quality can you expect by using umbrellas and what are the available options in umbrella size, color and method of shooting?

The Magic of UmbrellasMinimum Lighting, Maximum Quality is a 90-minute workshop that’s held in conjunction with Jack Dean that is limited to a maximum of eight attendees so everyone can have shooting time. After an introduction into the concepts and functions of using photographic umbrellas, the workshop includes hands-on instruction from Joe Farace on using the various sizes and types of umbrellas. Hand-outs containing all of the technical information covered in the workshop will be provided.

The last workshop, on Saturday January 19, 2013  was a hit and several people signed onto a waiting list. To accommodate those who couldn’t make it last time plus all of the people who were on the waiting list, another Magic of Umbrellas workshop will be held in March 16, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 at the Main Street Creatives & Art Gallery in Brighton. Come join us for a fun and informative program where I’ll demonstrate how to get maximum quality portraiture using the minimum lighting techniques with all kinds and prices—as low as ten bucks—of umbrellas. Click here to register for the event.

Fee is $30 per person, which includes model fee and release. Bring a camera because everyone gets to shoot!
