Intermediate Lighting Setups with Profoto
with Scott Kelby
Take your location lighting skills to the next level! Join Scott Kelby in an iconic theater for an intermediate level class on lighting setups. With a talented ballerina as the model, Scott takes you through the process of telling a story with photographs. From the cramped dressing room, through the cluttered hallway, to the beautiful stage, Scott shares his process for working through the challenges each location presents. You’ll start the class with a brief look at the gear, but then it is on to one shoot after the other, with six unique shoots in all. Throughout each one you’ll learn about the lighting settings, the process of positioning lights, the importance of camera angles, how to make the best of what the location presents, how to work with your subject, and so much more!
