Photo Safari

Optional In-Depth Workshop

Let’s have the light fly! Yeah, a bad play on words but that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Photography is all about light and the better we understand and use it, at the camera and in the digital darkroom, the more successful our storytelling will be.

We start in the classroom talking about light, how we see it, how the camera interrupts it and how you can use it to tell our story. This includes looking at it in the digital darkroom giving you ideas for the shoot. Then we’re heading out to shoot, some classic aircraft, which includes WWII Warbirds in a great setting and ’40s Pin Up Girl models to add to the excitement. We’ll work with ambient light, flashlight and the melding of the two into our final photo.

All you need to bring is some camera gear, a bucket of passion and a planeload of fun and we’ll cover the rest. Look forward to shooting with you!

Location Lighting Shootout

Optional In-Depth Workshop

This class is for any photographer who loves to photograph people. That’s you right? After all, passion is the main ingredient in portrait photography. From there you’ll still need a wealth of technical knowledge to create environmental portraits or to truly capture someone while out on location. In this pre-con Erik will walk you through overcoming the challenges of taming harsh outdoor light, naturally, as well as with strobes.

Erik will be setting up studio strobes and reflectors/diffusors of all sizes for you to use. After a quick introduction to the gear, the shooting will begin. He’ll teach you how to tame natural light for amazing images as well as how to introduce strobes into the scene for maximum creativity and control. This is an opportunity for you to shoot with Erik’s assistance and try out gear that he uses every day on commercial jobs and you’ll be able to add some killer images to your portfolio.

After attending this workshop you’ll not only walk away with killer portraits and lifestyle images for your portfolio, but the ability to recreate them on command! You will also have first hand experience working with professional models and the latest high end lighting equipment from Broncolor and commercial lighting modifiers from California Sunbounce. From here on out no location or shooting situation can stop you from creating awesome imagery!

Equipment Requirements:
Attendees bring your DSLR Camera, Lens (24-70, 70-200 etc) and Memory Cards for this workshop. Leave the computers, flashes, and triggers at home.

Photograph Like a Thief: From Concept to Print & Everything Between

Optional In-Depth Workshop

With Photography becoming more and more popular how on earth do you set yourself apart? How do you develop a style that is uniquely yours and instantly recognizable?

In this 4-hour LIVE Shoot and Retouching Workshop Glyn will show you exactly that, but first it begins with COPYING!

We’ll be looking at work by Masters such as Annie Leibovitz and Dan Winters and learn how to study the light, reverse engineer lighting set ups and their post production style so that we can then use what we have learned to influence our own photos, but with our own individual touches.

We’ll also be looking at how to come up with ideas, where to look for inspiration, working with non professional models, the importance of props, creating a ‘look’ and more as we go ‘hands on’ from Concept to Print and EVERYTHING in between including Lighting, Set Up, Shoot and Post Production using Lightroom and Photoshop.

Posing to Flatter Anyone

Optional In-Depth Workshop

Flattering posing is absolutely essential to bring out the best in your portrait subjects. No one pose fits every person. Instead you must learn how your camera sees paired with other posing essentials in order to understand how to flatter each subject that steps before your lens.

In this workshop we will learn about posing men, women, couples, perspective, flow posing, and much more to really gain a strong foundation of this key element of portraiture.

Photographer Lindsay Adler, author of “The Photographer’s Guide to Posing” will demonstrate these concepts and you’ll have an opportunity to put these concepts into action.

Tim Wallace

Live Shoot: Lighting a Car for Maximum Effect

Optional In-Depth Workshop

Tim Wallace is renowned as a commercial transport photographer and is highly regarded for his car photography for such leading market brands as Aston Martin and Jaguar.

This special workshop gives you the rare opportunity to see Tim work with his own unique methods, both lighting a car as well as working through different aspects of how light can be used effectively for this very difficult lighting subject.

Many of the lessons taught and techniques used will translate into other areas too where lighting reflective subjects is involved from the small scale such as product photography, through to such areas as aircraft photography, something that Tim recently has begun to explore with great effect.

It’s lighting stripped back and explained by a professional that is well known for his lighting abilities, one not to be missed for sure. This is very much a hands on event where Tim will explain and demonstrate many different aspects of lighting from his personal knowledge gained over years of working within the commercial advertising industry.

Jaw Dropping Images On a Low Budget

Optional In-Depth Workshop

Shooting models on location is always a challenge, what do we do with lighting, which camera gear to bring, what to do with the location, which angles…… the list goes on and on. Often however it’s forgotten how important it is to have a great story and styling.

In this intense pre-con you join Frank Doorhof and for the first time ever in the US his model/stylist Nadine Stephan in a complete shoot on location. You’ll learn how to master the model shoot from scouting the location, choosing the right gear and lighting to the styling of the model and how to coach/pose the model.

The real challenge?
We’re not doing this in fancy locations but Frank and Nadine are going to show you that you can create amazing shots in simple locations with amazing styling and light.

Topics include:
Stylists and photographers view on a photo shoot.
Working with strobes on location, using a light meter for quick and easy setup, workflow, posing and coaching the model, the right modifier for the job and much, much more.

Food, Glorious Food: A Lesson in Food Photography

Optional In-Depth Workshop

Come and learn from Joe Glyda, a professional food photographer for over 40 years. Food photography is one of the most challenging and time consuming forms of commercial photography. Yet most photographers feel they can tackle food assignments like they do other types of photography. Joe will demonstrate lighting scenarios, camera angles, and post production techniques. This workshop will start with a classroom style presentation, discussing the do’s and don’ts of food photography, as well as how to work with chefs, food stylists, art directors, and agencies. Afterwards, there will be hands-on exposure to shooting various food subjects.

In past Photoshop World Conferences, Joe has taught a 90 minute class as a “LIVE” food shoot with a food stylist. It seemed like there was never enough time to cover the intricacies of this difficult subject and that it would make more sense as a pre-conference workshop. We will not be using a food stylist which will allow more time towards understanding the photography aspect of this subject.

Equipment Requirements:
Participants should bring their camera and preferably approximately 100mm macro lens. A zoom lens will not work as well as a fixed lens.

Tack Sharp! Sharpening in Lightroom

Lightroom

Sharpening is one of the most important and misunderstood parts of the digital workflow. It doesn’t matter if you shoot weddings, fashion, landscapes, or anything in between, when sharpening is done well, it can send a photograph to the next level. When poorly done, it can introduce a host of issues and artifacts that can ruin an image. In this course, Daniel will demonstrate the use of sharpening tools and techniques in Lightroom to create the best image possible. He will also show key areas to focus on when sharpening an image so that you don’t introduce any of the negative effects of sharpening, such as noise, loss of detail, halos, etc. Sharpening happens at three different phases in the digital workflow (input, output, and creative), and this course will cover how to use Lightroom for each phase. Over the course of this class, Daniel will also demonstrate all the options for input sharpening, explain how output sharpening works, and show techniques for applying creative sharpening to your images to make the most of each photo. The course will also cover how to use some of the more popular 3rd-party sharpening plugins to enhance your workflow.

An Evening with Stacy Pearsall

Special Events

Join us for an evening you’ll be talking about for years to come as we welcome one of the most inspiring photographers of our time; Stacy Pearsall. Pearsall will share with us about her time as a U.S. Air Force combat photographer, being injured in combat, and how that inspired her to start the Veterans Portrait Project an event that will tug at your heartstrings.

Pearsall got her start as an Air Force photographer at the age of 17. During her time in service, she traveled to over 41 countries and completed 3 combat tours. While in rehabilitation after sustaining injuries during combat in Iraq, surrounded by Veterans from every generation and all branches of service, Pearsall started the Veterans Portrait Project (VPP) to honor and thank them the only way she knew how, through photography. She’s traveled coast to coast with the VPP and has documented roughly 6,000 veterans in over 100+ engagements. In 2015, Pearsall assisted in the establishment of the Veterans Portrait Project: UK where former British Army combat engineer and photographer, Stephen Porteous, utilizes her concept for British veterans.

In 2016, Pearsall hosted community-based exhibitions showcasing veterans from their respective hometowns, conducted more VPP events and took part in a USAA sponsored YouTube docu-series of her adventures on the road with the VPP. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, and those who fought valiantly, several VPP images will cover the walls within the Pentagon. In Spring 2017, her work will be featured in a joint exhibition, “The Face of Battle, Americans at War 9/11 to Now,” at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.
In addition to her achievements with the VPP, some of Pearsall’s other accolades including being one of only two women to win the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) Military Photographer of the Year competition, and the only woman to have earned it twice. She also has been awarded the Trojan Labor American Hero Award, the Carolinas Freedom Foundation Freedom Award, honored with the Daughters of the American Revolution Margaret Cochran Corbin Award, lauded by the White House as a Champion of Change, and holds an honorary doctoral degree from The Citadel. Pearsall has served as a nominating juror for the Pulitzer Prize and held a presidential-appointed board member position for the NPPA. She sat on the advisory board of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at The Citadel since 2009.

We are honored to have Stacy on our stage in this special presentation open to all full conference attendees. It’s a night you won’t forget!
