Gorilla Lighting workshop 11-8-2010


It was a great day working with Ben and his gorilla workshop, we had two great models Alexandra and Victoria – and 7 eager students wanting to learn Gorilla lighting.  The first part of the day Ben held his lecture, followed by some in classroom studio shooting with portable strobes  followed by some group discussion.  Later in the afternoon we moved to a nice area off Barranca in Azusa to capture some awesome sunset shots using two portable strobes and teaching the class how to use proper exposing techniques to capture dramatic lighting.  The indoor shots we used standard 3 light setup followed by some split lighting techniques.  The outdoor shots we needed to bring our the Alienbee portable storbe with the Alien Bee 22″ Beauty Dish.  I hope you enjoy the shots.
