Location Lighting Workshop – Controlling harsh mid-day lighting

For more info visit:  https://www.meetup.com/Photographers-Models-Big-Island/events/246945433/ 

Anyone can take beautiful images during the golden hour, but handling harsh mid-day light is one of the most challenging issues most photographer face especially here in Hawaii. In this workshop we will cover essential techniques on creating flattering lighting under crappy conditions. We’ll be using both natural light and strobes. Feel free to bring the equipment you are most comfortable using. I’ll be bringing some of my equipment to share if anyone wants to try before they buy.

I’m looking for models to join us, but we can also practice on each other. Although the focus will be portraits many of the techniques can be used on other types of photography as well.

This workshop is $20 per person and FREE for members of The Kona Camera Club. If you’re not already a KCC member please visit http://www.facebook.com/KonaCameraClub for more information.
