About the Workshop

Presented by PPSCV and PPGBA, acclaimed photographer and instructor Tim Meyer will lead you through a fast-paced introduction to professional lighting techniques and posing. He will illustrate how your choice of light shaping tools, metering, ratios, facial analysis and posing work together to produce consistently high-quality images.

This class will be about light styling – using light as a tool to shape and make statements about style – and will provide the opportunity for you to develop a professional level of portrait lighting skills. The material will be geared toward introductory to intermediate skill levels, but will provide a review of fundamentals that even seasoned photogoraphers may find beneficial.

Although presented in a studio environment, this class will be also very valuable to photographers who work on location and with natural light. Lighting equipment will be provided by the instructor.

* Models available for the workshop.
* Bring your camera!
