About the 2-day Intensive Lighting Workshop

This is a one of a kind workshop experience taught by Roberto Valenzuela based on his new book Picture Perfect Lighting. This workshop will be held at a dude ranch in Tucson, AZ nested in the middle of the Sonoran Desert.

All students are highly encouraged to stay at the workshop location to spend more time together as a tightly knit group experiencing the beauty of the Sonoran Desert and learning lighting in a positive and fun learning environment.

The goal of this workshop is to give attendees the know-how on how to problem solve any lighting issue that comes their way on the job. Furthermore, this workshop will also go over lighting in a way that it becomes intuitive. Roberto will go over how to use natural light in a way that your subjects will pop in the image but at the same time, make it look completely natural.

This is an area that most people miss. The second part of this lighting workshop will address how to mix flashes or strobes to a natural looking image without the need of much equipment. This way, you can stay agile during a shoot. This concepts Roberto will teach will bring a sense of sophistication to your photography through elegant and flattering light with or without equipment.

Workshop will begin at 9:30 am and go till 5:30 pm with night activities as well.
