Lighting on Location for Editorial Fashion with George Simian
January 5 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Today’s editorial fashion magazine cover is shot in visually-interesting locations, with charismatic actors or models enacting a story. Strobe lighting is the key element for creating the drama necessary for the appropriate mood. Join us in a special-event space in Pasadena, to create magazine-cover-worthy images!
We will have actresses to perform for you, with grooming and styling ready for the camera. You will create striking fashion portraits, with portable pro strobe lighting equipment. You will use an array of light modifiers on Profoto strobes to create excitement and to focus the attention on the actress, to separate and highlight her, and to render a colorful environment. You will learn to control the quality of the light, set a custom White Balance to match gels on the strobes, balance the strobe with the ambient background, and make images where the light sets the mood, creates a style, and evokes emotion!
This will be the most advanced fashion lighting workshop we offer. Working in small teams, changing locations and models every hour, you will create dozens of completely unique dramatic images. Simply bring your camera, your favorite lens (normal to short telephoto) backup batteries and memory cards – and we will provide the rest (education, models, strobes, drinks and snacks). At the end of the photo shoot we will have a short demo of editing and post-processing. *A week after the workshop you’ll send us your best shots, and we will post a group web page, as well as reward the actresses with your images.
