Day 2 

Title: How To Create Inspiring Photographic Opportunities When Shooting On Location. 


So many variables must be considered and when shooting on location, even contingency plans must be put in place in case something fails.  In this class, Canon Explorer of Light, Roberto Valenzuela, will share with you how he manages the harshness of the sun to his advantage, how to get incredible results on location with flashes, and how and when to use bigger strobes such as Profoto.  Roberto will explain what lights and modifiers he chooses based on the circumstances and challenges he faces on location?  And lastly, how to still be creative and execute an unexpected portrait inspired by the location and light at any given time.
