Location Lighting with the Elinchrom ELB 400 with Scott Kelby
Take your studio lighting game on location! Join Scott Kelby for an action packed class on how to use the Elinchrom ELB 400 in a variety of locations. From a local golf course to the Nevada desert to a wedding venue, Scott shows you all kinds of ways to leverage the portability and power of the ELB 400 to unleash your creativity. Scott starts off by introducing the kit he uses on location, explaining the various components, and showing you how they work together. From there it is location, location, location, as Scott demonstrates how this kit works by putting it through its paces indoors and out. At the end of the class Scott shows you three very cool special effects modes this kit can do that are a lot fun to see in action. All along the way Scott digs deep and shares lighting tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your time and get the best results possible.

Whether you have this lighting system or not, you’ll gain insights into Scott’s methods of working on-location and lighting techniques. This class will be available to KelbyOne members later today, so keep an eye out for it. You can also leave a comment for your chance to win a 1-month KelbyOne membership so you can watch for free!

Styling food is a huge component of food photography, and Steve shares invaluable tips on how to handle and style everything from fried eggs to cold glasses, and from real flames to coffee. For each shoot Steve builds the set from scratch sharing his thought process and various tricks and techniques he’s learned and developed over his career. Beyond the sets and the food styling you’ll learn how to control, tame, and manipulate natural light even if you’re just using one of your own windows.
