All Day with World Acclaimed PHOTOGRAPHER,  Joel Grimes - ($99 Additional)

Sponsored by Canon USA

                                             NO Discount Codes Honored

Joel's Program Description:

Throw out those lighting diagrams and those annoying lighting ratios and sell your flash-meter on eBay!  Well, that may be a bit drastic, but think about this:  a technical instrument can never make a creative artistic decision--this is reserved for the human mind. In this one day session, Joel will be covering how to use all sorts of modifiers such as soft boxes, the beauty dish, octagon banks, umbrellas, grids, etc., while working from an intuitive, feeling approach. This is, without question, the key to the whole creative process. You will be presented with ways on how to develop your personal creative vision that is unique to you.
