Join PPA Master Photographer Ted Linczak for a half-day master class that will take an in-depth look at on-location lighting for both the portrait and wedding photographer. We will breakdown the most common light sources/scenarios encountered in on-location portrait and wedding work, including window light, overcast conditions, direct sunlight, reflectors, continuous video lights, off-camera flash, as well as unconventional light sources. We will spend our morning in a class setting looking at examples of each, and going over the details of how to master each one for your client work. We will also have some hands-on learning opportunities as we shoot with models and demonstrate how to use the various light sources we’ve discussed in the morning session. Lighting is the lifeblood of portrait photography! Learn how to master it! We hope you can join us for this in-depth lighting study!

I will end the class with a session on how to artwork
your images using Photoshop, NIK filters, Adobe
paper textures and Portraiture 2. It’s going to be a full

This class is geared to helping you think your way through less than ideal lighting situations and find ways to deliver images that exceed your client's expectations. We'll cover how to work with the cards you've been dealt. Then discuss how to stack the deck back in your favor and add lighting when the situation calls for it.
