Feburary's Speaker: Chuck Vosburgh (02.26.13)

6pm at Crab Island Cantina

If you think you need a lot of equipment 
to get beautiful images, 
attend this meeting for a change in perspective.
The old masters typically used just one light, and you can get the same kind of results once you know how. You’ll see exactly what you need and what you don’t need to create beautiful images with minimal equipment.

Chuck will show you some examples of on-location work created with minimal equipment, explain the different kinds of lighting available and how to decide what will suit you the best. Next, he’ll show you what he takes with him and share the secrets of how to work with what can be carried-on when flying to an assignment. In the second half of the presentation, Chuck will set up a classic portrait with just one light and one reflector, and add more lights one by one so you can see what each light does.  He will also show you his tricks for getting the best from your subjects.
You’ll learn techniques you can start using right away whether you work with flash, strobe, continuous or ambient light to get consistent, predictable, beautiful results every time.
