What you'll learn

We will teach how to light large and small event spaces for Weddings, Quincenaires, Sweet 16 Party and Special Events. We will dive into the dynamics of setting up one, two, or even three lights to give the event a lively look and feel, while preserving the beauty and texture the client expects. We will discuss using the proper modifier for coverage, and to isolate a particular scene. We will also touch upon photographing the details of an event and capture the people in the best light possible. This course will give you the knowledge and confidence to light up any reception, party, or special event. This class will be lecture and demonstration.
