If you are in the Denver metro area next week, stop by to attend two free photography seminars hosted by world reknown photographer Will Crockett of shootsmarter.com. Crockett is the director of photography at Crockett & Co., a fine-edged commercial photo production company based in suburban Chicago.
The seminars, presented by Denver Pro Photo and Bogen, will be free admission and open to the public with no registration. So get there early at 235 S. Cherokee Street, Denver CO 80223, 10866-360-4940
Wednesday, April 15, 6-9 p.m., "Wake Up and Smell the Pixels," will help you build the most efficient pathway from click to print. Generating an income in professional photography means becoming efficient with ALL your resources. Will Crockett is known throughout the industry as a solid shooter who takes the shortest (and most profitable) pathway from "click to print." He uses technology, a little skill, and a boatload of smarts to create digital files that print or go to press with very little (sometimes ZERO Photoshop!) adjustments. See some of Will's "OneLight" simple yet powerful lighting setups, plenty of workflow shortcuts, and more image quality boosting tips. Will will be using his own gear to shoot live images, then will share all his tips on how to move the file directly from the camera to the printer with nothing short of amazing results.
Saturday, April 18, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., "Limitless Lighting with Off-Camera Flash," will start with a digital camera and a shoe mounted flash -- then it will get the flash off the camera for some easy and gorgeous portrait lighting. Crockett will show you his own style of creating light using the simplest of tools. Learn the secrets of using one flash off camera with perfect exposure and color, wireless triggering made easy (and inexpensive!) and a few of his favorite light modifiers for making soft, portable and pleasing light just about anywhere.
Hope to see some of you there!
