Schedule and Format
This is a four-hour hands on class with a 15-minute break around the middle.
To start the class, instructor Scott Sitkiewitz will walk through how to look at a photograph to figure out the lighting tools and placement used to create the look. From there, he will demonstrate how to set up and use the strobe lighting gear.
After the demonstration, we will split into two groups with a maximum of 4 people in each group. Each group will then be given a photograph to recreate with the lighting equipment provided. The class will be the subjects! A major objective of the class is for students to understand what it is like to be in front of the camera.

Scott fell in love with photography about 10 years ago while working in Chicago and began the long journey of learning all he could.
