Next Workshop! April 16-17th, 2010

Our first workshop was a huge success (you can read reviews here), and so we’re going to get one more done before the season starts in earnest. This will be the last weekend workshop I’ll be able to offer for a loooooong time.

It would be great if life were always fabulous, if the light were always perfect, if everything happened according to your schedule, if your subjects were always naturally comfortable in front of the camera. But that’s not the world in which we live. So my workshops focus not just on tools that will let you create beautiful imagery, such as “the Brenizer Metho”d of bokeh panoramas, but how to make the most of less-than-perfect situations. What do you do when you want to create dramatic lighting, but it’s high noon, you have a giant wedding party, and one tiny little speedlight? What do you do when you want to create great portraits, but it’s pitch black out? What if the weather is horrible and you can’t go outside, and you’re left with no obviously interesting locations to shoot in?

These are the situations I and other photographers face all the time, and I’ll show you how I work through them, as well as showing you advanced tools for artistic expression like quick-and-easy flash composites, mixing strobe and continuous lighting, and basic flash techniques that guarantee perfect exposures every time.

But photography is more than just exposures. There will also be discussions of documentary style, how to make uncomfortable subjects comfortable, and how to further develop your own artistic style.

Lastly, these workshops are great opportunities for networking, and I want you to have as much fun as possible, so there will be a social mixer at the studio on Friday night (April 16) as well as the full-day workshop on Saturday (April 17), as well as official hotel accommodations for those who need it. Both the mixer and the workshop will be at the fantastic 2 Stops Brighter studio.

And, because I think some workshop prices are a bit nutty, all this is just $350.

Rafael Javier - Hey Ryan, count me in…I’m excited already…
The first workshop was amazing…I’m pretty certain this one will be as well.

Kirsten - Heck yeah count me in!!

Kyle - ARGH. Can I pay you $350 dollars to move it to May when I’m actually in the country?!? Yours is one of the few workshops that I’d actually be both willing AND able to pay for. Really cool that you’re doing it for that price. You’re a good guy Ryan. I don’t know why I said that though, I’m sure you don’t get your validation from a random girl on the internets :)

Ryan Brenizer - Kyle,

All my May weekends are booked, but let’s schedule some individual sessions!

Pedro Vilela - You must do a workshop in europe :D
PLEASE!

Elle Ticula - Would love to come and join in the fun. Trying to move my schedule around to get myself to NYC in April now.

Gemma Schipani - I would LOVE to but I’m over the pond in the UK :-(

Lisa - Hey, I’ve been following your work for a few years now…huge fan. I’m curious, do you ever host workshops in the ATL?

Ryan Brenizer - Not yet, but you never know! That would certainly be one of my favored cities to travel to.

Geoff - Time for a West Coast workshop next time you’re out? LA or San Diego, I’ll let you choose…
