This is a hands-on class where you will have plenty of time to photograph using Gary's expensive equipment!  You will leave with new knowledge of specific equipment to the fashion and modeling industries, and some gorgeous new images for your portfolio!

We'll start with a ring light.  Gary will demonstrate its use, explain what it is used for and why, how to set it up and explain how to use it using a model so you can watch it in use.  Then we'll take turns using the ring light with our own cameras.

The next piece of equipment we will learn about is the Beauty Dish.  Why use it, when to use it and how to use it.  Everyone will have ample time to practice with the Beauty Dish.

We'll move on to the Octobox modifier.  Gary will help us understand why we would use this huge modifier! 

Gary is bringing in quite a bit of equipment so that we can get an understanding of what and why fashion photographers use different equipment.  He'll teach us how to use professional strobe meters and we'll get to use his fashion wind machine.

Have you ever wondered why some poses work and some don't?  Gary will go over posing techniques as a part of this class too!

We'll start in the studio and move outside for an Editorial Location shoot.
