What happens when you take 16 working pro photographers, a ton of lighting gear, one location lighting expert, and stuff them all into the biggest barn you’ve ever seen? The place really lights up.
LPA recently sponsored and hosted a location lighting workshop for members of ASMP New England with Boston-based photographer Rick Friedman. Rick’s got the energy dial set to maximum pretty much all the time which is definitely part of his success as both a photojournalist and photo educator. He’s also got a bag full of PocketWizard radios which he puts to work in all his lighting work – both with speedlights as well as with studio lights.

From the official description of the Location Lighting Workshops:
The class explores different ways to achieve the lighting effect you desire for your images. You will learn how to create awesome light with one speedlight and progress to multiple light situations, balancing available light with strobes and mixing speed lights with studio strobes. We will work with infrared transmitters and Pocket Wizards as well as softboxes, grid spots and other light modifiers. You will be guided in color balances, color correction, cross filtering as well as adding and controlling color when capturing your images.
