One-Light Workshop, December 9th

One-Light Workshop

Benton Street Studio

1105 Benton Street, Santa Clara, CA 95050

December 9, 2018

10:30 am to 4:30 pm


We all have experience with a one-light workshop every day of our lives:  The sun, the biggest, brightest light source.  We watch it rise, change color temperature throughout the day, filter through clouds, create rainbows in the rain, shine boldly in clear blue skies, and set itself against a million different backdrops.

In this hands-on workshop, we will demonstrate the use of one light source for portrait lighting.  You will be able to see the effect of one light source from different angles on the portrait subject and how you, the photographer, can impart, evoke, and provoke different emotions and reactions.  It is an exciting photographic adventure.

What to bring:

  • A camera
  • Laptop with imaging software (RDPW preference for Adobe Lightroom)
  • Comfortable attire
  • A sense of humor (It goes a long way)

This class is for those interested in refreshing and improving their skills and taking their photography to the next level.  At the end of this workshop, if you wish to continue, you are invited to enroll in the Richard Dischler Photo Workshop (RDPW), with its focus on pre-visualization techniques and philosophy, which will help you reinforce what you have learned and enable you to continue your momentum.

Through this Workshop, you will discover—and hone—your own, unique photographic voice.  You will also be better prepared for more in-depth lighting sessions being offered.

Most students finish this one-day lighting workshop with greater enthusiasm for their photography and a hunger for learning more.  Please join us and our growing community of local photographic talent.

Fee:  $249 ($189 for RDPW Members)
