    "Location Lighting"
    with Rick Friedman

    Join award-winning photographer Rick Friedman for this full day, hands-on “Location Lighting Workshop”.  This intensive and interactive seminar is designed for portrait, wedding, corporate, and event photographers and photojournalists who desire to improve their knowledge of lighting. Many of Rick’s assignments allow for almost no setup time.  Rick will be teaching this technique of lighting.  Rick has taught this workshop in across the US, UK, Bahamas, Costa Rica, Canada, and United Arab Emirates.  Come join us for a day of lighting, laughing, and photographing models!

     The workshop commences with ways to create wonderful light by using a single Speedlight with different light modifiers, then proceeds to using multiple speedlights, mixing speedlights with studio strobes, balancing strobes with available light and working with LEDs.  The workshop includes working with color gels for adding drama and accents to your photographs. Rick created the “Location Lighting Kit” gel pack for Rosco.

     

     The class will work with various types of light modifiers, soft boxes, Octas, light panels, screens, grids, snoots, reflectors, gobos and barn doors and projected backgrounds. The Savage LEDs Rick works with enable the user to control the output and colors with an app on your phone and are perfect for light painting models and backgrounds. Attendees will learn the use of light meters and various types of radios.  Rick will also cover the essentials of building your own gaffer kit.
