Professional Photographers

Studio Makeover Workshop!

Greenville, SC February 8 & 9th, 2012

Day 1:

Studio lighting boot camp– learn all the different lighting patterns and how to achieve them, learn how to meter lights, understand light ratios, learn to use different lighting modifiers including softboxes, grids, barn doors, gels, etc.  We will spend the day in the studio demonstrating and practicing all the different techniques. If you are interested in becoming a Certified Professional Photographer, we will be covering how to create each of the required portfolio images.  You will have the skills to go home and create those images on your own and much of the knowledge needed for the exam part of certification.  We will specifically cover short light, broad light, 3:1 ratios and selective focus, which are the three mandatory image requirements for the CPP.

That evening, we will be going out in downtown Greenville on a photo safari to take those studio lighting skills and apply them to location work using off camera flash.  We will break into two smaller groups and work with live models where students can explore different lighting situations and create images under instruction supervision.

Day 2:

Workflow enlightenment: We will be taking the images created on day 1 and walk them through our workflow to final client delivery.  From download to final presentation we will demonstrate how to save time on dozens of different image tasks.  Once the image editing is complete, students will participate in a mock order session and can get answers to any of their typical client questions while also observing how we display and assist clients in making their purchase decisions.


Class size will be limited to only 15 students for each day.  Both Olyn and Linda Long will be instructing the class, giving a great opportunity for individual attention.  Class on Day 1 will be from 9-5 and the photo safari will be from 7pm- until everyone is finished.  Day 2 will be from 9-6.  Tuition for either day individually is $350 or $600 for both days until January 15th.  After January 15th, the price raises to $400 per day.
