Update from Alexandra on Tuesday March 20th:
I just wanted to let you know that for the day of the event the company has decided to offer another 15% enhanced trade in value if there is anything your members are looking to get rid of/haven’t had luck selling on craigslist/kijiji.
Alexandra Leask from Henry’s Kanata has just informed us about their upcoming Lighting and Portrait event. It’s free and takes place March 25th, 9am – 11am
Alexandra says the event will include:
1) An introduction to Godox and strobes set ups for portrait lighting.
We will be going over some intermediate to advanced portrait lighting techniques using Godox strobes, multiple flash set ups and modifiers. Participants will have the chance to set up and direct their own “studio” set up and use their own gear to photograph portraits at this station.
2) Video lighting
At this station we’ll talk about how to set up a space for video, the various types of lights you would use for various set ups, and single to multiple light set ups. We will also go over the importance of colour temperature, how to match up and use light from two different sources (ex, window light with an LED bulb) and how to downsize your kit to shoot on location.
3) Single flash set ups
This station will perhaps be the most practical of the four! At this station we will talk about (and of course play with) single flash set ups, talk about when and how to adapt the flash on camera, when to pull the flash off camera, and what simple modifiers can be used with the flash or on their own!
4) Focal length and perspective.
While the third station might be the most practical this one is sure to be the most fun. At this station we’ll have a slew of lenses (with a focus on the Sigma ART primes) for everyone to play with. There will also be a demonstration to show how various focal lengths effect face shape and can add (or detract) from the scene and feeling you’re trying to create in your images. Lenses from this station are welcome to be borrowed to be used at the other three stations.
If you have any questions, please contact Henry’s Kanata at 613-836-1016.
