Westcott Speedlight Modifiers
with Scott Kelby
Join Scott Kelby at the Mirror Lake Lyceum in St. Petersburg, Florida and learn how to use three different light modifiers with your speedlights. When shooting weddings and events you need your lighting setup to be portable, fast, flexible, and deliver awesome results. In this class Scott shows you how to use a very large softbox, a 7 foot parabolic shoot through umbrella, and a strip bank softbox to get great results shooting everything from bridal portraits to a group shoot, and from formals to casual shooting on the go. In many cases one light is all you'll need, but Scott also shows you how to take it to the next level with a second light and modifier. Through each shoot Scott shows you how to assemble the light modifier, put it in position, and get the results you need. BUY COURSE
Our Courses Are all Broken Down Into Small Lessons Creating Easy Breaks and Stopping Points
lesson 1: Introduction (free course preview)
Join Scott as he introduces the class and discusses what will be covered in the chapters that follow.
lesson 2: Bridal Portrait: Part 1
The Mega JS Apollo is a 50 inch pop-up softbox that will be used for a bridal portrait.
lesson 3: Bridal Portrait: Part 2
Building on the previous lesson Scott switches to a wide angle lens to create a more epic portrait.
lesson 4: Bridal Portrait: Part 3
Another way to use the softbox is to create a rim light on the subject in a profile shot.
lesson 5: Groom Portrait
The groom portrait can be done with the same softbox in a different location. To take it up a notch higher Scott brings in a strip bank softbox behind the subject to separate the subject from the background.
lesson 6: Formal Portrait
Bringing the couple together for a set of formal portraits Scott switches to a 7 foot parabolic shoot-through umbrella. A reflector can also help bounce a little more light into your subject when needed.
lesson 7: Group Shot
Moving the light source back from the group is the key to controlling light fall-off in a group photo.
lesson 8: Casual Shooting
Mounting the strip bank sideways on a monopod gives you the ability to shoot anywhere while on the run.
lesson 9: Conclusion
Scott wraps up the class with some closing thoughts on the three light modifiers used in this class.
