Kenny Epps - Lighting

Kenny Epps will discuss studio setup, shooting on location, lighting styles (e.g. Flat lighting, Rembrandt, Clam Shell lighting, and Lighting Ratios), equipment needed (on a shoestring budget) to do in and outside studio portraits, how to acquire models and where you can find them.  Kenny will show how to use speed lights for shooting portraits.   Kenny will  use members as models and plans to bring one or two people up from the audience and let them go thru the process of calibrating the speed light for a perfect lighting output. 

Come see what you can do with lighting - This will be a full night with a lot of great information!
