Simple Beauty: One Strobe, One Backdrop, Many Looks (Alix Martinez) FULL
Limited Capacity full

This shooting demonstration class is for anyone who is interested in studio light shooting but wants the simplicity of using only one light. I will be using a Profoto B1 strobe light to demonstrate how you can achieve many looks with only one backdrop and one person. I will shoot tethered to my laptop computer so attendees can see instantly how my images look and how they vary with each simple setup. I will be moving the light to different angles, show how to achieve shots with contrast, and demonstrate front lighting. I will also demonstrate using natural light from the windows alongside the strobe to achieve a natural light look. You will see how I interact with the models and watch my typical workflow. I will be shooting in manual mode so an understanding manual will be helpful.

This boutique program will take place in an open indoor space with studio and natural light and easy access to an outdoor patio overlooking the ocean.

Learning Objectives:
1. Feel more confident shooting with a strobe light.
2. Understand that less is more when it comes to lighting setups.
3. Get a feel for shooting headshots, fashion, and commercial photography using one strobe indoors.
4. Create many looks using one simple backdrop and one light.
