 with Josh Baker

Boring Backgrounds. White Seamless. Ugh. Not any more! Come get weird with us in this class. Aluminum Foil? Yes we will be using foil. Haze, projectors, and crystals? Them too.  Sign up for this class if you are ready to shake things up and explore your creative brain by putting old things to new uses. 

Please register early, within 5 days of the start date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation.

Equipment Required

Bring a camera and lenses you like. Note taking materials. Memory Cards, batteries. And bonus but not required item: something shiny or translucent. Instructor will provide lighting and creative equipment.


This is an intermediate to advanced class. You should know how your camera works and have at least an understanding of off camera lighting. If you feel you are stuck in a rut and not sure how to break out, this is a great class for you. We are going to teach you creative tools that you can apply to your photography.
