Creative Lighting for Real Moments

Lighting in a studio is one thing. And lighting a posed portrait is another. But lighting an unscripted moment, out there in the real world? That’s a whole different animal. If you love real moments. And if you love awesome light. Then this one’s for you.

About this workshop

Real moments AND spectacular light – you can have both.

Join internationally-acclaimed photographers, Erika & Lanny Mann, for a FREE workshop about creative lighting in the REAL world. 

No staging. No directing. No posing. Just real moments, AND spectacular lighting. Whether you find yourself documenting wedding prep in a cluttered hotel room, or your kids at play in horrible light, come learn how to light it up like a boss, without intervening in their moments.

Here’s what you’ll learn
  • How to execute creative off-camera lighting, during real moments, without intervention, and without an assistant.
  • How to combine manufactured light, with an unobtrusive documentary approach to photography.
  • How to utilize lighting to bring real moments to life in your photographs – turning what they looked like, into what they felt like.
  • How to achieve dramatically lit compositions, in horrendously lit scenarios, without staging or directing.
  • How to bounce seamlessly back-and-forth between shooting natural light, and manufactured light, on-the-fly.
  • How to use off-camera lighting for indoor ceremonies (even when “no flash photography” is allowed).
  • How to use lighting to layer multiple stories into your photographs.
  • How to use flash to highlight moments within cluttered, distracting scenes.
  • How to use off-camera lighting to combat white balance nightmares.
  • How to choose the right gear for high-performance documentary photography.

Photographers who want to catch more real moments, with better light.
