Fashion and Glamour Studio Lighting Workshop

Tomorrow, 02-26-11, is our Fashion and Glamour Studio Lighting workshop at our studio. Tonight we'll be setting up the different shooting locations within the studio as well as all the lighting. There are 12 confirmed photographers, eight models and 4 MUA's (make-up artist). It should be a fun day!

Here is the description of the workshop:

On February 26, the Second Street Photography Studios partners are pleased to host a Fashion and Glamour Studio Lighting Workshop presented by well known local photographer Dean Johnson.

Dean is an instructor with SuperShoots Photography Workshops ( His work has been published in numerous magazines including Maxim, Blender, Playboy, Maxim's Hometown Hotties, Teeze Magazine, Miami Magazine and MotorXRacing. Some of Dean's extensive work can be seen on:

SuperShoots -
Model Mayhem -

During the first portion of the workshop Dean will explain how to pose the model and the proper lighting techniques to achieve the desired effect. He will tell you why you do something and not just how to do it. During the second portion of the workshop you will have ample time to photograph and practice these new techniques with experienced models.

The workshop includes:
-Personal, hands-on assistance from Dean
-Models with makeup and hair done by professional make up artists
-Several unique shooting bays and lighting arrangements including the all important high key cyc wall
-Studio lights with wireless triggers will be provided for each shooting bay. (You don't have to bring your own lights; just your camera.) NOTE: If your camera requires a special hot shoe adapter, please bring it with you to the workshop so you can use the wireless triggers.
-A working lunch and beverages

The number of participants will be limited in order to give everyone time to shoot in each of the shooting areas and work with the models. The all inclusive cost for this workshop is $125.

Second Street Photography Studios is a 4000 square feet studio located at 2518 Second Street North, Minneapolis. The workshop will start promptly at 10:00 a.m. and will end around 4:00 p.m. on February 26, 2011.
