What To Expect
This is a very fun 4-hour class focusing on my night lighting technique. It is held in my comfortable studio, just 2 miles south of downtown, at 1932 S. Halsted St, #402, Chicago. And there is plenty of free street parking!
I’ll explain and show you in detail how I create my night images. This will be followed by an extensive hands-on workshop where I dim the lights and you create photographs using my equipment and my guidance. Your images will be projected and we’ll discuss them, then we’ll keep on shooting.
My technique is also perfect for creating fabulous portraits, which you will also learn to do!
This class will not disappoint!!
There is no need to bring your camera or lights. I’ll have a digital camera on a tripod and you will all have turns with my lights, taking photos and looking at the results projected on the wall.
Bring a USB Flash Drive and I’ll transfer your images for you to take home.
My class fills up with both pros and novices. My lighting technique is very unusual yet very simple to learn, so it doesn’t matter how much or how little you know, you will be able to create a very different and exciting type of image when we’re done.
From the 2012 class:
“Xavier, your workshop today was great and worth every penny I spent. Excellent insight into how you create your beautiful work. And an inspiration. I’m a portrait photographer but some of your Alley & Ruin techniques are a wonderful addition to my coffer of photographic tools.”
A couple of the many, many great images from last year’s students. These were created using simple lights, and no photoshop:
