Heading to St. Lucia again, and the Anse Chastenet/Jade Mountain Resort to teach advanced lighting techniques, and all manner of post production wizardry, courtesy of my good friend and co-instructor, RC Concepcion. We start with an introductory dinner and then, beginning Monday morning, run for five straight days of working with light in one of the most beautiful places on earth. We build in time to relax and explore as well.
Here’s a link to the workshop schedule, and all the day to day events, types of rooms, rates, etc.
It’s one of my favorite places on earth, so much so, the ever gracious owners of the resort, which consistently ranks among the top resorts in the world, commissioned my studio last year to shoot a book about the place. Nick and Karolin Troubetzkoy carved out a piece of heaven in the splendor of the Caribbean, and the pictorial inspiration there is infinite. No matter how many times I go, I find something new to shoot.
We work with all manner of small flash techniques, from high speed flash to multiple speed light interiors. Balancing indoor/outdoor scenarios with flash, working with gels, line of sight TTL and manual radio syncing all gets covered, as does–available light! The week is dedicated to recognizing good light when you see it, using it well, and then augmenting it with small speed lights as appropriate. Hard light, soft light, and all manner of light shapers are discussed. We work with jungle bikers, island characters, and beautiful people on the beach. We work in one of a kind, magnificent sanctuary rooms with sweeping views of the sea and the Pitons, and solve the photographic problems of making a flash interior match a bright exterior.
And, numerous times during the week, RC takes over and shows HDR magic, Lightroom skills, and how to make your workflow flow. It’s a full week of skills, set in the splendor of what has been often rated as the top resort in the entire Caribbean.
