    Fashion Posing & Lighting with Seniors - David Beckham

    We will be looking at multiple types of lighting: Studio Strobes, OCF, LED Studio and outside.  We will also be using multiple modifiers to achieve different effects and results.  This will be a hands-on class so bring your cameras and Godox triggers.  Throughout each of the lighting set-ups, we will be learning the Elements of Posing.  By breaking down posing into simple steps we can learn how to pose any body type in any situation.  We will be using HS models so that we can get great photos as well.
