    Live Natural Lighting Shoots

    Food Setup: Food photography can be an expression of beautiful colors and great textures. Great food photography makes the viewer want to dine where you are. In this setup, we'll have local dishes prepared, and a table setup with reflectors and cards. All you have to do is step in, and see what element inspires you to make a photograph. That said - try not to eat the food.

    Model Photography: A great picture often starts with a great subject. The subject must know how to move with the camera, and what looks will make the image as flattering as possible. How about spending some time in a shoot setup with a trained model? This will give you the chance to solely focus on your gear - and get that winning shot.

    Macro Station: Colors, textures and details spring to life when focusing really intently on a small portion of a picture. Instead of taking in a wide expanse -get really close in this macro setup of random objects. With the right gear and a little patience, you'll be surprised at the results that you'll get. If you own a macro lens - this would be a good time to bring it.

    Wedding Shoot: A beautiful wedding shot can really add a new dimension to your photographic work. That said - you don't really want to commit yourself to shooting a wedding if you don't have any experience in doing so. Renting a church and a bride model can also be a costly venture. In this setup, you'll have a natural light wedding chapel here in Vegas, a Bride and Groom, and the time you need in a relaxed environment to test out making a great shot.

    Hands On Labs

    Sometimes it takes just the right environment to unleash the creative brainiac in all of us. Our Hands-On Labs will do just that, offering a wide variety of creative explorations that allow you to work on your own project, but with the professional guidance of our Photoshop World instructors. Don’t worry – our instructors won’t be judging over your shoulder, but rather a real-live, walking-breathing-help-me-now Easy-button ready to answer all your burning questions.

    With each lab, you’ll have the opportunity to spend time with people who share the desire to create, socialize and be inspired. All you need is a fully charged laptop, a photography or illustration project relevant to your selected lab, and a can-create-inspire-me-now-attitude.

    There are a variety of topics available and labs are limited to 40 participants. Registration for the labs is free and will be filled on a first-come, first served basis.
