Presented by Alison Carlino

2:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Ever walk into a location and feel less than inspired? After 15 years in the industry, Alison has seen her fair share of lighting challenges and has helped even the most nervous individuals relax into poses that match the mood of the light & the location. The first part of this class assumes you understand the exposure triangle and are already using flash off camera but need some creative inspiration for difficult light & stiff humans.

Learn how to walk into any space and diagnose the QQCD of the light (the quality, quantity, color, and direction). Once you know what you’re working with, you can visualize the end result and work backwards, adding the flashes, modifiers, gels, and drama to complete your image. Alison will describe the manual settings used & show pull back photos with her go-to single flash technique called the “triangle of light” as well as when and where a second and a third light can be placed. Modifiers from bare bulb to umbrellas, to softboxes, grids, and gels will be discussed with photo samples.

Advance your thinking into the realm of HSS (high speed sync) using all Phottix lighting gear. You’ll understand what it is and when it could really help your images.

The last part of the class centers around relaxing your clients and guiding them into poses that match the mood of the lighting as well as the location. Alison will demo modern posing for females, males, and couples ranging from basic to creative.

  • Identify the QQCD of light in any location and decide how to proceed.
