*Early bird pricing available until December 1st


In this masterclass, Ben and Barbara will teach you how to use one and two studio lighting setups to achieve the necessary lighting for your fine art images. Mastering studio light and getting a good RAW file out of the camera is essential, and we will teach you how to get there! You will then learn how to edit the photographs using Capture One, Adobe Camera Raw, and Photoshop. Bring your laptop along so you can practice the techniques we will teach. Day 1 will be spent learning lighting, boudoir and fine art posing, and shooting. Bring your camera so you can create images of your own with the models in the studio. On day two we will cull images and Ben and Barbara will show you their editing workflows and techniques and help you edit your images from day one.

The workshop will take place near Hurstbourn and Interstate 64. It's just a short 15-minute drive from Louisville International Airport and Downtown Louisville where Imaging USA will be taking place.

Lunch is included on both days. Location details will be sent once your booking is confirmed.
