Creative Kitchen Portraits

Photography is all about LIGHT and this workshop is all about the fundamentals of that elusive formula.  Robert will stir you up with the FIVE properties of light and how to beat them - including the sun.  Then we will sprinkle in the simple way to understand different light meters and why they are always correct, but you don’t like the answer.  And top it off with the ONLY difference between natural light and flash that is easy to overcome.

So interesting so far?  Hang on… it’s gets crazy about halfway through the program.  Robert will LIVE shoot with unique light modifiers found in your kitchen.  Yes, YOUR kitchen.  You are encouraged to bring whatever kitchen utensil, mixing bowl, pots, pans, plates, cups, appliances, etc. available to be part of this unique portrait.  We will use those items to create dramatic lighting, as well, as possible props for the models.

Register now for this fun, casual and information packed program. Bring your enthusiasm, questions, and favorite dance moves. Skeptics and hecklers encouraged to attend with special seating in back of room. Fruit may be provided.
