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!

Erik Valind

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.

A sturdy Tripod is also required, and an LED Flashlight of 150 Lumens or more are necessary to bring, as the class will be working in a dark venue.

Required LED Flashlight:

Sit! Stay! Snap! On-Location Dog Photography Shoot

Optional In-Depth Workshop

Join world-renowned dog photographer Kaylee Greer in a day-long, natural light only adventure filled with clicks, wags and plenty of treats! (for the dogs, and you too!) See the world from a dog’s point of view as you immerse yourself in the happiness, silliness and joy that is so uniquely canine.

Your adventure will start in the classroom where Kaylee will go over the real world trials, challenges and incredible rewards of working with a subject that speaks an entirely different language than you. You will learn valuable information about interacting with dogs and get some great insider tips on canine body language that will help you evoke emotion and expression in your furry subjects.

The journey will continue with an on-location photo shoot chock full of gorgeous four-legged models where you’ll shoot alongside Kaylee and try your paw (err…hand!) at making your own dog portraits. (And maybe give out a few butt scratches while you’re at it. To the dogs, guys…not each other… 😛 ) Once you return from your hands-on shooting adventure, you’ll head back into the classroom to watch the magic come full circle with a live editing demo. Kaylee will put the finishing sparkle and shine on an image as she fully post-processes a select from the afternoon’s shoot! (Note: Editing your own images at this point is optional, you can watch and take notes, or follow along on your own favorite image from the day!)

Intro to Adobe Muse CC

Creative Cloud

Everyone wants a great website, but very few of us are web coders that write HTML. That’s exactly why Adobe Muse CC exists. If you want a completely custom responsive website and don’t want to have to write the code to make it happen, then you’ll want to take this class. We’ll start with a blank page and learn the ins and outs of creating a website from scratch.

Let There be Light: Licensing, Copyright and Usage

Business

Over the past decade AmbientLife has worked with a who’s who of automotive royalty, from Jaguar, Aston Martin and beyond and in this session Tim will be talking through what can sometimes be regarded as the blurry subject of Licensing, Copyright and Usage. It’s a huge subject and many people get the fundamentals of copyright in its essence but have little idea on ‘licensing’ and ‘usage’, what they mean, how they impact on each other and how these things are indeed crucial factors to consider right from the outset before you even shoot the gig.
