I've commented several times over the last two months about opportunities to demonstrate leadership as we come out of the pandemic. Well, here are a few perfect examples!
Everyone is looking for ways to make their work look different. At the same time, technology never slows down, and there are more people on the Internet than ever before - many of them potential clients checking out your work. So, from understanding infrared to outstanding portraiture to flash, are your skills as good as they could be?
Nobody does it better than Bobbi Lane and Lee Varis, and yes, I'm a little prejudiced because they've been good friends of mine for so many years. But the friendship grew out of getting to know them and the respect I have for their skills as artists and educators. Plus, they're FUN to hang out with. Remember "FUN?" It's a word that got lost a little over the last year, and it's time to get it back!
The first stop: Coming up this Sunday, June 13, on Cape Cod - Bobbi and Lee are teaching an infrared workshop.
Next stop: Check out their new online portrait lighting course.
One more stop: In Los Angeles on June 26/27 at the Los Angeles Center of Photography.
Confused about your flash? Then this is the class for you. In this two-day workshop, participants will learn how to control and modify their portable flash units. Portable flash is a wonderful and sometimes intimidating tool and it will be explained step by step on how to choose the correct settings and modifiers.
We will do demos using TTL and Manual settings and explain why to choose each, and give easy instructions for making beautiful Fill Flash. A variety of lighting techniques will be covered with the emphasis on understanding the three main aspects of light: direction, quality and depth.
One last stop: Bobbi and Lee have only one opening left in their Iceland Tour this September. Just click on the banner below for more information. Then, make sure Bobbi and Lee are on your radar all year long!
These are two educators and artists who never slow down, and they ALWAYS exceed the expectations of their students and clients!
