About This Workshop

Special Effects In The Studio


  • Using Smoke in Fashion and Beauty Photography

    Smoke can be a very interesting part of any photo-shoot, but not everyone knows how to get the best images with smoke

  • Colors with strobe lighting

    Lets see what can be done with colored light

  • Special Light Modifiers For Special Effects

    It is not only smoke or color gels that you can use for special effects on your images. There are special light modifiers to be used for best results, and we are going to explore them.

Behind The Scene


Alex Koloskov

Commercial photographer, co-founder and teacher at Photigy.com. Instructor at KelbyOne.com, Udemy.com

I grew up in Kiev, Ukraine where I later attended college and received a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. Needless to say, I’ve never put my degree to work in its specialty. It was a time of economical collapse after the fall of the Soviet Union, where the entire country was in chaos. This was when my “official” education ended. Since graduating I’ve never had any other formal education, all of my skills have been self-taught.

I’m a mix of technicality, innovation and out of the box thinking. I love taking on technical challenges in anything I do, including photography.
As a photographer, I am completely self taught. I don’t know the rules, nor do I care about them. I don’t follow the herd, I do it my way. That’s turned out to be invaluable in what I do. It has allowed me to experiment, see outside the borders, challenge the authorities and create a stunning photography style that is crisp, sharp and crystal clear.
I’m inspired by progress and movement. I’m incredibly persistent and never take “less than perfect” for an answer. If I don’t have the right tools, I’ll build them myself. I like to make stuff happen.
