Photographers often use live subjects posed in a studio where light can be carefully controlled to create wonderful images.

In this three day workshop we will learn about studio lighting and how we can use strobes to create the kinds of images that Old Masters painted. We will take examples of Old Masters art, reverse engineer them to understand the kinds of light they used and then, using a live model, make classically lit photographic images.

Professional fashion models will be the subject of our work.

Instructor: Christopher Mark Perez is an internationally published photographer (LensWork, PhotoLife, Gimp, and SilverShotz Magazines, as well as several books of Steampunk creations) and competition winner (including The Strobist, and The Center for Fine Art Photography). Christopher recently moved to Paris to connect with creative people in the pursuit of making fine photographic images.

Requirements: Camera with either a "hot shoe" to hold a strobe radio transmitter or a PC connection for a flash sync cord (see flash synchronization...but we will get to all that in the course), and a lens capable of a 50mm focal length (full frame equivalent).
