Want to capture the best shot when you’re not within reach of your beauty dish, umbrella or softbox?
Join us for the Anytime Light workshop. We will discuss topics applicable to wedding, event and portrait photographers, with special attention paid to the fast paced/low-control wedding environment and focus on quick mid-day portrait, venue, and detail lighting.

- Using reflectors and scrims to modify available light.
