WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Advanced Amateurs & Professionals
WHAT ATTENDEES SHOULD KNOW:
Good knowledge of use of shutter speeds, aperture, and ISO.
WHAT ATTENDEES SHOULD HAVE:
DSLR digital camera and any lenses you want.
A wide angle lens: David uses 24 1.4
A longer lens for shooting around a group. David has a 90mm 2.4 Fuji lens to cover the portrait range on workshops.
At real weddings David uses a 70-200 2.8 Canon. That is a good lens to bring if you have it.
If you have a lens like this: 50 1.4 or wider, 85 1.8 or wider, or any lens that can go wider than F-stop 2.8 it would be good for our video light section or in dark areas without flash.
But…it is not a big problem if you don’t have one.
Bring a small LED videolight if you have one. I have some so don’t worry if you don’t.
We will be hand holding a lot of higher ISO with open F Stops like 1.4. If you think you will need a monopod, bring one.
David will not be using a tripod or monopod.
David does not use flash.
This is not a flash workshop.
No need to bring a flash.
David does not use stands, lights or reflectors.
Please don’t bring them.
Be prepared to go outside for shooting. No need for laptops. This is a shooting workshop. Everyone will shoot. There will be no business, workflow, software or marketing at this workshop.
We will be shooting outside for a few hours and then inside for a very special and hands on videolight concept shoot. We will explore together some very cool one-light concepts in darker situations. Ideas and concepts you may have never seen before.
This will be a very exploratory, experimental and unusual workshop designed to help you step-outside-your-box and create magical art!
Be prepared to be amazed!!!
Bring good walking shoes, water, and as little equipment as you can get away with. Don’t carry a big roller bag.
