This workshop covers both an introduction to studio lighting techniques and equipment found in a studio, digital workflow, and professional retouching techniques. Attendees will photograph a model—who will have professional makeup and fashion styling—and then use those images while learning retouching techniques. We will start at the beginning with a discussion of the nature of light, and quickly move into practical demos with live models. Take a look at the topics below, and book your seat to take 8-12 months off your journey to more professional results!

We will have a Wilhelmina Brown model wearing outfits styled by Fashion Stylist Edie Henry who moved recently from Los Angeles and our makeup artist for the workshop will be Liliana Espinosa.

This workshop is designed for those photographers who are starting out, who have little or no experience in the studio, and feel the need to increase their photoshop skills to garner more professional results. Multiple lighting setups and models will be used to examine different avenues of photographing in the studio. While not expressly a studio class, the workshop begins with a section devoted to the studio, and will cover the basics and give you a framework for the types of equipment you should consider within 3 different price ranges.

Bring your camera and a notebook with CS3 or CS4.

(My focus will be on the studio photography while Rodrigo will focus on digital workflow, post production, and professional retouching.)
