From our Official Partners @ MagMod

"Pye and the team at SLR Lounge have always been my go-to educators when it comes to learning lighting because they teach incredibly complex techniques in a simple, easy to follow presentation. Pyeā€™s relevant, real-world experience on how to make baller lighting is second to noneā€”especially for on-the-go photographers that shoot in high-paced and constantly changing environments. The opportunity to partner with SLR Lounge as experts in lighting education is a no brainer. They get it!"

Lighting 3, Advanced Off Camera Flash is the third course in the Location Lighting Mastery Series and is all about multi-point lighting to create images that stand out from the crowd.  All techniques are demonstrated using a variety of highly portable gear and light modifiers and also include what we call “power translations” so that you can know the exact power settings used, and how to recreate that light with any flash or modifier you already own. 

This course is fast paced, and builds upon knowledge from Lighting 1 and Lighting 2 to take you to a new level of lighting refinement, so be ready to dive in.  You will walk away with classic light patterns and formulas that are recipes to a unique and beautiful image no matter the scene or situation. You will learn lighting and special effects techniques to create images that will wow your clients.

What People Are Saying About Lighting 3

This stacked light technique to accentuate face is just awesome and would probably never occur to me on my own without this tutorial!
- Jiri B, Workshop Member

What's great about these tutorials is not only the technical set-up etc, which one would expect, but the extra detail, which although I have shot a few of these setups (not as expertly or I wouldn't be watching!), I had often not managed to quantify why a shot doesn't work or doesn't feel right. Details such as the client not looking into the camera in this one seems obvious, but personally I hadn't registered exactly why I didn't like some of my own shots, and this is like a lightbulb moment.......
- Tessa S, Premium Member

This was an awesome workshop. A ton of useful information. I will be returning to portions of it to review and refresh my memory as I practice the techniques. Great job everyone!
