Bring the Light – Artificial Light Workshop


I’m excited to share with you my “Bring the Light” workshop!  Shooting with one main artificial light is a huge part of my style. In this workshop I will teach you how to use the same lighting technique, and other photography philosophies I’ve learned, to enhance your own style. This class will apply to most genres of photography and will be a great resource to all photography students.

This class will be kept small, safe, and intimate. Which means space is limited. You will want to register as soon as possible to guarantee your seat. This class will not be covering photo re-touching. We will be spending most of our time discussing composition and the science and theory of using artificial light, and capturing a good photograph “in-camera” first. Dinner will be provided. We will also have a brief location shoot to demonstrate the lessons we learned in our class.

Below are some examples from my portfolio of using only one artificial light.

God Bless You,
-Adam Allen
