OVERVIEW

In the fast paced world of editorial and fashion photography, the working photographer needs to be skilled and ready at any instant to capture the "decisive moment" both in the studio and in the field. A popular method used to expand the range of your creative expressions behind the camera is through the use of lightweight and powerful speed lights and the use of radio transmitters.

Zack Smith Photography’s “Studio on the Geaux : NOLA” will expose you to a myriad of methods to create dynamic lighting schemes using speed lights and light modifiers such as umbrellas, reflectors, and softboxes. You will learn hands-on how to apply these lighting schemes in an indoor studio and outdoor urban environment with professional models at a professional studio; Salon De Beau Monde. We will have the New Orleans Warehouse District and Central Business District as our backrop on a very easy going Sunday! In addition, we will discuss the integration of the natural environment into your portrait photography which combines both artificial and available light into one striking environmental portrait.

In conclusion, integrating both 'Studio on the Geaux' with the philosophy of 'Shoot for the Wall' will facilitate a platform to create, develop, and produce high quality images that can then be used to tell your story.

CLASS OPTIONS

TESTIMONIALS

 

  • "Zack is clear, thorough, encouraging, and a well planned presenter"

 

  • " The workshop was actually not what I expected!  For only 5 hours, I expected just a quick run down of the gear you use and then a walk around the FQ with maybe 1-2 spots for a model.  You really jam packed that class with TONS of great info.  It could have been a full day or 2.  You went into great depth on the gear and flow of a shoot rather than photo basics, which is great for many photogs who know how to shoot but need to get pushed out the norm that they shoot" - Eric J Nunez, Photographer, New Orleans.

 

 

  • "Zack was informative, organized, energetic, and the information was useful and pertinent"


  • "I learned alot and i look forward to getting out to the French Quarter Fest this week"


  • "Zack creates such a casual atmosphere which promotes an easy learning environment. I want to take this class again as with each of his classes..."


  • "You have a great wealth of knowledge and a desire to teach it." - workshop participant at Zack's "Studio on the Geaux"
