Light The Way
An OCF Workshop for Wedding Photographers
Join us in the Philadelphia Suburbs over the winter to revamp and refresh your mind on OCF! We will dive into the nitty gritty of lighting at weddings and walk you through how we use flash and modifiers to control the light during any part of the day.
Who: Grace + Matt Rauppius of Right Start Photography
When: January 29th, 2017
Cost: There are two options available for our workshop attendees! We have a single price registration or registration + MagMod kit. If you select the registration and MagMod kit you will receive it the morning of the workshop.
We will be working almost exclusively with MagMod equipment. If you do not yet have MagMods you can borrow them from us or we highly recommend purchasing the MagMod kit with your ticket!
Registration + MagMod Kit: $600 ($550 Early Bird Pricing)
MagMod Kit will include:
(1) Standard Gel Set
(1) MagMod Transmitter Band
(1) Carrying Pouch
We will be limiting this workshop to only 12 attendees so that we can provide a personal experience to each student as well as 1-on-1 time to answer questions and dive deeper into each students current skill level.
What Can I Expect?
While we want you to leave this workshop feeling as though you have all the “tricks” in your toolbox, what we hope you will take away from this workshop is the inspiration and desire to push your photographic boundaries.
Not only will you spend an intense day of learning, we also understand the importance of forming close relationships with other photographers in our industry. We strive to instill the importance of Community Over Competition and networking with other photographers in our industry. It’s our hope that you walk away from this workshop with at least one more friend than you came with!
Our registration fee will cover the workshop time + lunch. It does not include lodging or dinner.
What Will I Learn?
We have spent hours sifting through all the photography knowledge we could teach you, and have
narrowed it down to what we feel are the four points of focus for using off camera flash on a wedding day:
- The Engagement Session– We won’t spend much time on this, but we will highlight ways that you can easily use off camera flash WITHOUT an assistant to give your images a unique look or combat most popular problems.
- Family Formals + Outdoor Portraits– We will talk about how to light full sun portraits for a natural look as well as how we light classic family formals both indoors + outdoors.
- Reception Lighting– We will be spending the majority of the workshop walking you through our off camera lighting formula for details, introductions, first dances, cake cutting, and open dancing. We will be discussing the best way to light the room with 1, 2, 3, or 4 flashes. The key is to work what you have and work it well!
- Night Portraits– We will be walking you through our process for night portraits, both creating portraits from thin air and highlighting the beauty of the venue at night!
If there are any scenarios that aren’t covered in these 4 main focuses please let me know and we will do our best to answer any questions you might have!
Who Should Attend?
There is no specific demographic required to attend this workshop, but we do feel that wedding photographers in their first through third year of business would get the most out of this workshop.
What Gear Is Required?
A DSLR camera with removable lens is required to take this workshop. This workshop will be hands on and you will be forced to think outside the box both pushing your equipment to the limits as well as your creative thinking.
Students must also own a minimum of (2) off camera flash units and the ability to sync them for shooting. More than (2) flashes are also permitted.
