PPA Master Photographer, Craftsman and Certified Professional Photographer Cliff Lawson
-PPA Continuing Education-
Date: Sunday, March 25
Time: 9am – 5pm
Maximum Class Size: 10 Students
Join us for a full day of Professional Level Studio Lighting and Shooting with Master Photographer, Master Craftsman, and Certified Professional Photographer Cliff Lawson.
The first half of the day, Cliff will demonstrate proper lighting technique in a studio setting along with different ways to set up lighting. After which everyone will set up their own lighting and practice shooting with models.
Everyone should bring their camera and their favorite portrait lens.
Generally, something in the 50mm to 120mm works well. A 70-200mm is always good.
The second half of the day will be devoted to Cliff educating the group on the hands-on post-editing process.
While bringing a laptop is not a requirement, it will help the learning experience to be able to follow along. Some people do just as well taking good notes. It is your choice.
If you do bring a laptop, it must have Photoshop™ installed as that is the software that will be used, not Lightroom™. Also, the use of a mouse or tablet is recommended as using a trackpad for retouching just causes brain damage.
Also, note that this is not a Photoshop™ class. Participants must have a general working knowledge of Photoshop™. It might be a good idea to review the use of some of the basic retouching tools such a the Clone Stamp, Healing Brush, Sharpening, making selections, and Layers.
If not already installed, having the NIK Color Efex Pro™ and Silver Efex Pro™ plugins would be a good idea but not a requirement. Those are free, so no cost for some of the best plug-ins available. Get them here: https://www.google.com/nikcollection/
