    The Artful Eye of Fashion Photography Part 3: On Location at Night with Gregg Cobarr

    December 1st, 2018 in Los Angeles, CA - Sponsored by Samy's Camera

    Photography has always been an important part of presenting the latest designs in fashion. This workshop series given by Gregg Cobarr explores how fashion can be presented using a unique approach – the clothes are just one part of the entire equation, not the entire visual content. Attendees will come away with a different understanding of what is possible in fashion photography and how rules are made to be broken.

    In this nighttime, location workshop, attendees will be encouraged to develop their own style and at the same time, learn techniques of photographing fashion in a variety of settings using an urban environment. This workshop will pay close attention on how to work with models in very specific types of settings, utilizing the many variables of both available and professional, battery operated lighting during nighttime and experiment with the unique visual ideas that only nighttime can offer.

    The Key to Great People Portraits with Gregg Cobarr

    January 12th, 2019 in Santa Ana, CA - Sponsored by Samy's Camera

    This course is designed to teach you skills to be able to adjust quickly in a variety of shooting situations most commonly found while photographing either for personal work or on assignment.

    You will learn and apply how to constantly change, while shooting, four very important elements: aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance – to create a different look and feel of your photos. These changes will be made while you’re shooting so that you can easily adapt to a variety of lighting situations, changing scenes outdoors, as well as different locations with a model.

    Making spontaneous, creative and intuitive decisions are important keys to becoming more proficient as a photographer and at the same time being able to have complete control over your images. This course will take place in the classroom, then proceed outside for hands on guided instruction. A model will be provided.
