Learn how to get beautiful images with minimal equipment in this one-day hands-on workshop.

Saturday, August 18

Dave Cross' Studio 3, Oldsmar Florida  

If you think you need a lot of equipment to get beautiful images, attend this workshop before you start wasting money. 

The masters typically used just one light, and you can get the same kind of results once you know how. It's easier than you think!. In this one-day hands-on workshop, you'll learn exactly what you need and what you don't need to create beautiful images with just one light and one reflector. You can use flash, continuous or window light with these techniques to get consistent, predictable, beautiful results every time. You'll also see how different light modifiers like umbrellas, soft boxes and dishes work, and how to decide what will work best for you.  

This class is hands-on. You'll be photographing still life and a live model and learning step-by-step. With Chuck's easy, down to earth teaching style and help, you'll create a beautiful, classic portrait. 

 Who should attend? 

Any photographer who wants to take their photography to the next level using minimal equipment. All skill levels are welcome. If you know how to set your camera to manual mode and adjust the aperture (f-stop) and shutter speed, this class is for you. 

What you'll need to bring: 

  • A camera with a hot-shoe flash attachment that can be used in manual mode 
  • Blank memory cards 
  • Charged batteries
