My Light it, Shoot it, Retouch It Tour is in New York City on Thursday, with around 900 or so photographers who will be there and I want you to be there too!!!

It’s not to late if you want to snag one of the remaining seats. It’s only $99 for the full day, including a detailed step-by-step workbook that follows right along with what I’m doing all day, plus some other goodies I can’t tell you about until the workshop (by the way, it’s only $79 if you’re an NAPP member, so you gotta go!).

It’ll be a blast, plus you have no risk at all, because we have a 100% money-back guarantee if it’s not the best seminar of its kind you’ve ever attended, at any price, period! What do you have to lose? Don’t just read about it on my blog on Friday—come on down to the Javits center and be a part of it. Here’s the event details. I hope you can make it (and if you come, make sure you come up and say hi).

See you there! :)

P.S. I did a short video clip about the seminar–you can watch it right here.

I did a quick video about my first shoot with the just announced new Westcott Spiderlite TD-6s. If you’ve got two minutes and 16 seconds, check it out (I interrupt the shoot briefly to show you the difference between the old TD5-s and the new TD-6s and it will be instantly clear what’s new).

For more on the TD-6s, visit Westcott’s site. Also, if you’re not following Westcott on Facebook, you oughta. They always have cool stuff going on, or info on lighting techniques, giveaways, and stuff like that. Here’s the link.

P.S. Terry White did an in-depth review of the TD-6s over at his Tech Blog Here’s that link. While we’re having a link-fest. Here’s another (I’m not sure where it goes). ;-)

After teaching more than 2,100 photographers in four cities, it’s time to take the show to the Big Apple, as my “Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It Tour” comes to New York City for its only New York stop this year (the shot above is from my Chicago tour stop last week. All photos by Jeff Leimbach). Here are the details:

When: Thursday, June 2nd
Where:
The Javits Center
Registration:
$99 for the full day, including detailed step-by-step workbook.
>> Only $79 for NAPP members
Reserve Your Seat: Right Here.

The tour has sold out in every city so far, so if you want to join me for the day, I would grab your seat right away.

Above: That’s Brad Moore looking concerned between sessions, but then…Brad always looks concerned. Well, between sessions anyway.

Above: Brad is working the hair fan during one of the shoots. Notice how he’s looking away from our model, Stevie Lynn, so the fan is actually aiming at the neck of her bass guitar instead of her hair. Yes, it was that kind of day. ;-)

Anyway, I’m really excited about bringing the tour to New York, and I hope I’ll get to shake your hand in person on June 2nd at my seminar. See you there! :)

P.S. Don’t forget—if you’re not absolutely 100% head-over-heels in love with what you learn that day in my seminar, and for any reason you don’t think it totally kicks butt, we’ll refund your entire tuition right on the spot!

I’ll be in Boston a week from this Thursday (March 24th) kicking off my new “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch It Live!” tour. Hundreds of photographers are already signed up and I want to make sure you’re there, so go snag a seat right now (here’s the link), and spend the day with me seeing the entire process—from the lighting to the shooting, to all the post processing and portrait retouching in Photoshop. You see it all, unfolding live, and I don’t leave anything out.

You get a detailed workbook (shown above) covering all the stuff I’m showing in class (in the same order I’m doing it, so you can follow right along), plus, we offer a 100% money back guarantee if for any reason you think it doesn’t totally kick butt and make you want to run home and try all these new techniques yourself (which by the way, puts a ton of pressure on me, but that’s OK—I’ll have Brad there to create a diversion).

I hope I get to meet you in person in Boston in just 10 days! I am totally psyched!!!! See you there!

Boston is the first stop on my nationwide “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it, Live!” tour, and I really want you to be there.

If you’ve got one minute and 20 seconds, could you take a moment and watch the quick video clip above where I tell you about the tour, what you’ll be learning, and why you’ve gotta be there.

Here’s the link for the full class schedule, and how to sign up. It’s only $99 for the full day, (including a detailed workbook), or just $79 for NAPP members.

Hope to see you in Boston. We’re going to have a blast.

P.S. One more thing. If you come and don’t think it was totally worth it, and your head isn’t spinning with loads of new techniques, we will gladly refund your full tuition, so can’t lose. See you there!

This are just some of the dates from the first leg of my new nationwide “Light it, Shoot it, Retouch It” tour, but since we have these dates already locked down, I thought I’d share them.

·  Boston, MA – Thursday, March 24th
·  Minneapolis, MN – Monday, April 4th
·  Indianapolis, IN – Wednesday, April 6th
·  Chicago, IL – Thursday, April 7th

Here’s how each session is structured
(1) I start each session with an empty stage and then I build the lighting set-up for a particular kind of lighting look from scratch, explaining everything as I go, all step-by-step.

(2) Then, I actually do a portrait shoot live in each class, sharing all the camera settings, lighting settings, and exactly what you need to do to nail that type of look.

(3) Finally, I take those images into Photoshop to show you how to do all the post processing, including editing the Raw image, all the portrait retouching techniques, and the finishing effects, so you see the entire process, from beginning to end, with nothing left out.

Not only will you be able to nail all these exact same looks, (using a simple, inexpensive studio lighting set-up), but best of all you’ll learn all the post processing techniques as well.

This all takes place in every class session, all day long—–the lighting set-up, then the shooting, and then all the post processing for every set-up, and every look.

I hope you’ll join me in one of these cities. It’s only $99 for the full day of training (or $79 for NAPP members), and includes a detailed, step-by-step workbook that follows along exactly with what I’m doing in the class.

As soon as the rest of cities and dates are locked down, I’ll announce those here too. I am super psyched about this tour, and I can’t wait to get there with you guys. Here’s the link to the full class schedule, or to sign up. I hope I get to see you in person soon. :)
