We had so much fun shooting and playing with the light at the ranch last week – here’s an opportunity you won’t want to miss –  join us for Bob’s upcoming workshop and take part in the fun!

Enhanced Workshop on Available Light Portraiture

Saturday March 1st, 10am – 4pm

Discover the power of available light from one of the Bay Area’s most talented professional photographers.  Bob is a master at creating studio-like portraits on location using available lighting techniques.  Available (ambient) light is found all around you, learn what to look for and how to find it.   Join us for a day of photography fun on a private 4 acre ranch atop the Oakland Hills.

Explore various lighting techniques, look at the difference between hard and soft light, and learn about reflective resources and how to maximize the potential of these photographic elements. Learn how you should adjust your camera to make the most of it.  Bob will review the importance of using proper lighting techniques to achieve the best possible portraits.

He will also review some of the building blocks of photography, the importance of background and perspective, depth of field, and the overall critical thinking process that goes in to getting a great shot.

We will start in the studio with a classroom presentation, then go outside for some hands on instruction.  After having lunch, attendees will have an opportunity to explore the ranch, and photograph with our hired model.  Come put into practice and problem-solve the principles discussed.  Learn how to use the nature of your light source, manipulate reflections, and how to re-work your scene for the best results.

  So… bring your cameras, some note taking supplies and a tripod (if you have one).

$175 includes the workshop, personalized hands-on instruction & lunch.
