  • We will demonstrate and discuss various types of studio lights, and how to setup them, light metering, setting color temperature/white balance, understanding lighting ratios, light modifiers, and basic digital workflow in the studio.

  •  We will set up a holiday theme and will use it to demonstrate most popular lighting setups with time for everyone to shoot in the studio. 

  • Every image we take during the workshop will be available for immediate review on a calibrated iMac display and large TV.

  • Measure strobe lighting. An introduction to light metering

    We’ll be using Sekonic light meter to calculate a proper exposure for your strobe lighting setup

We had an amazing workshop – with an amazing people, beautiful models and talented photographers!

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.
