Good Morning Everybody,
Today we wrap up my Fall 2008 Digital Master Class. It's been a fantastic week for all of us. This time around, I restructured the class to allow for more demonstration shooting time and to allow for everyone to shoot on their own in smaller groups at three locations around the city - a church, outdoors, and an evening location.
This gave the smaller groups more time to practice and allowed me to critique many aspects of lighting situations. They also had the opportunity, to interact, help, suggest, and learn from each other while trying to incorporate the ideas we discussed in class. Reviewing those images helped to bring full circle the concepts discussed in class. Many said it was their favorite part of the week.
I think everyone enjoyed the "Z-Ray" lighting technique I was showing too. I know a lot of blog commenter's have asked what I was using to illuminate the subject in the last two day's image posts. Here is the link to the Brinkman MaxFire Dual Xenon Rechargeable Spotlight flashlight I was using right here. It's a pretty cool little flashlight. I use it a lot not only on my subjects but also when shooting the scene setters at my events. Looks like I'm going to have to work this little wonder into a Technique Tuesday - stayed tuned...
