Have you ever wondered how Joel Grimes seems to nail the lighting on his portraits every time? Join Joel on a limited seat workshop where he will explain each of his signature lighting techniques in-depth, in an intimate environment. Joel will cover Rembrandt cross-lighting, how to build his dramatic 3-light portrait, his Ultra-Soft lighting, among others. Along with taking you step by step through these lighting setups, Joel will help take the mystery out of lighting and inspire you to think like an artist through the creative process. Attendees will have the chance to see Joel demonstrate the lighting first hand, then give some of the lighting setups a try on their own, using professional lighting, and a professional model.
