misc_none 11:30 AM  -  2:30 PM Studio Lighting Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Professional photographer & photojournalist Len Cook shares his 25+ years of teaching experience in this workshop:

Let’s shoot a product and a portrait using studio photography techniques. This class will introduce lighting concepts that are the heart of quality in studio images. We will photograph a product to make the best and simplest presentation for online selling, such as on eBay and Amazon. We will photograph a person using pro techniques to enhance the shape of the face and figure.

We will use a variety of lighting tools to demonstrate concepts such as “main” (or “key”) light, fill light, background light, backlight, edge light, and side light. In portraits we will also demonstrate lighting styles called Rembrandt, loop, butterfly, and split lighting. Throughout we will emphasize differences between “hard” light and “soft” light.

I will provide professional lighting gear including modeling lights, reflector attachments, modifiers, grids, umbrellas, soft boxes, flat reflectors, and backgrounds. The class will use flash in making images, but demonstrations will enhance understanding of both flash and constant light.

Registration is required. Sign up at the Information Desk, call (510) 795-2627 x7 when the library is open, or email Barbara at btelford-ishida@aclibrary.org.

Attorney George Derieg offers 15 minute free consultation and referrals on a wide variety of issues including estate planning, family, and criminal law. He does not cover landlord tenant disputes or foreclosures.

To make an appointment, please call (510) 795-2627 x7 when the library is open. If you are not going to be able to make your appointment, please call to cancel it.

The purpose of the consultation is to determine whether or not you have a legal problem and to provide guidance on how you might be able to solve your legal problem rather than for the attorney to provide in-depth legal analysis or advice. There is no continuing attorney/client relationship formed by your meeting with a volunteer attorney, but your discussion with the attorney will be confidential.
