Become A Marketing Genius with Joel Grimes
Learn how to thrive in the marketplace! There's no talk of f-stops or lighting in this class. Join Joel Grimes for a cold hard look at what it takes to go from sitting in the stands to playing on the field by upping your marketing game. It is possible for you to make a living in photography, but it takes more than just being a good photographer. You need also need to be good at marketing yourself, your work, and what you can do that sets you apart from your competition. Joel shares the wisdom he's learned and earned from years of knocking on doors, making cold calls, and (eventually) getting the clients he was after. If he can do it, so can you.
An Analysis of Light Shaping Tools with Joe McNally
The job of a light modifier is to take a raw blast of light and shape it, contain it, and make it work for the kind of shot you are trying to create. Join Joe McNally for a clinical look at a range of light shaping tools in a sterile studio environment to help inform your ability to extrapolate out their performance into the real world. Starting with a series of light modifiers for small flash, Joe demonstrates how each one works while using the same subject, and catalogs the effect each light shaping tool has on the light source and the subject. From there Joe moves on to analyze a series of light modifiers designed for studio strobes in the same circumstances. When the analysis is complete it is time to move the lights, light shaping tools, and subject out into a variety of real world locations to put what has been learned into practice.
