This all-day workshop will provide instruction and hands-on demonstration to enable the student to have an strong understanding about location lighting (natural available lighting and supplemental lighting; including but not limited to reflectors, diffusors and fill flash). The model will wear primarily evening gowns or cocktail dresses that will be an excellent juxtaposition to the gardens, sidewalk cafes and spray painted supplemental backgrounds. Learn about which lenses will create or reduce unwanted distortion in order to emphasize a three-dimensional volume to your image. Kirsten will be helping students with the styling of the model's wardrobe and the posing needed to make your image sing!  Bryce will help with the technical aspects of the photographic process; including custom white balance, optimal ISO settings, shutter speeds, apertures and how to wrestle with your tripod and win. (This is tripod shooting). The model will have at least 4-5 wardrobe changes. The lunch break is at one of the many new restaurants opening in this neighborhood in the last two years.  After lunch, we drive a short distance to a location that displays a visual delight in the form of spray painted graffiti background. This workshop will feature two models for your shooting pleasure.  Midwest Photography Workshops will provide reflectors and diffusors, you will be responsible to provide your own electronic flash and tripod.

Students are expected to meet at 687 Selden in Detroit by 10:00AM.

Students are expected to bring: camera with ample media cards, wide angle and telephoto lenses, tripod and a lens hood for each lens.  Just like you go to a restaurant, it is common and appropriate to give your waitress/waiter a tip or gratuity, such is the case here. You are welcome to provide a gratuity to your model at the end of a successful shoot.
