Location Lighting Workshop

Description of your seminar:
Location Lighting Workshop with Rick Friedman will be a dynamic, intensive, interactive photo workshop designed for portrait photographers, photojournalists, corporate, wedding, event photographers and serious amateurs who want to improve their knowledge of lighting. The photo workshop begins with creating interesting light with one Speedlight, progresses through using multiple Speedlites, light modifiers, color gels and ends with mixing both Speedlights and studio strobes. Attend Rick's class and you will leave feeling empowered to capture great images no matter what lighting situation you come up against! You’ll have the opportunity to work with a live model as Rick demonstrates his creative lighting techniques. 

WHERE TO MEET: You'll meet up at the Coral Gables Museum. 


WHAT TO BRING: Don't forget your camera and a few lenses, but keep it to the bare minimum, remember that you’ll need to carry this with you for the duration.

Rick teaches using both Nikon and Canon.

“I have the best job in the world, I get paid to travel, play with my toys and meet fascinating people.  What other job can you spend the morning with the President and the evening with the junkies, and meet everyone else along the way.”

"One of the greatest things about being a freelance photojournalist is the great variety of assignments I get to cover and the places I get to go. I could be covering the President one day, spending the following day with a noted scientist or professor (or both) and the following day over seas on a travel story. I truly have the best job in the world".
