Add on this amazing learning opportunity to your Winter Convention experience and level up your lighting skills. We will be looking at multiple types of lighting: Studios Strobes, OCF,  LED Studio and outside.   We will be using multiple modifies so that you can get different effects and results.  This will be hands on class you bring your cameras and Godox Triggers.    Through out each of the lighting set-ups we will be learning the Elements of Posing. By breaking down posing into simple steps we can learn how to pose any body type in any situation.  We will be using HS models so that we can get great photos as well.
