In only it’s second year, the Summit Lighting Photography Workshop has become a mainstay among the Summit Series of Workshops. Both new facilities and additional faculty made the 2015 Lighting Workshop one to remember.
Held in a bigger and better-suited location at Massif Studios, in Denver, Colorado from May 22-24, the Lighting Workshop delivered both a great classroom and studio setting as well as nearby parks and fields for location shoots.
Dave Black and Joey Terrill, Lighting Workshop faculty members and two of our most popular and esteemed faculty were joined by a third member at this year’s workshop; Matt Hernandez. Matt is a former student of the Summit Workshops and owns Matt Hernandez Creative, where he specializes in Senior portraits and athletic portraiture.
The three instructors broke the students into smaller groups and took them to shoot different things each day of the workshop. Joey and his group explored culinary and wedding photography in the studio, Matt took his group to Omnia Crossfit Gym to photograph athletes, and Dave took his group on-location to photograph soccer and baseball players.
Using their own cameras in conjunction with equipment provided by Profoto and Nikon, students were able to truly explore the depths of lighting and it’s impact on photographs. Students worked with studio lighting and high-speed sync to cover a wide array of lighting uses like commercial and sports photography.
