This all started with a Christmas card image I posted on Facebook. I had a lot of people asking about it and the lighting. All of a sudden I am offering a basic lighting class at the end of December. I marketed it on Facebook locally and we have a few coming. There is still a few spots available if anyone is interested.
LOCATION|DATE: Kansas City, December 30th 2012
It is only $175. I will cover the basics of lighting. Power, Distance and Placement. I will teach you how to feel comfortable using your flash or studio strobe with confidence.
It is Sunday December 30th from 10am to 3pm. In Kansas City. We might go eat something after. Possibly at the Gallery!
This is a light primer. Pretty basic stuff but essential if you want o move on and really master lighting.
I hope some of you will join me.
Send me a message if you have any questions.
Here is a video showing me shooting something for a project I am working on. Im using lighting outside to create a studio effect anywhere. This on top of a parking lot. After this class, you will be able to understand how to do this.
Today I was featured on Sandy Puc University. First, go to her forum and check out all of the wonderful photographic learning material she has. http://forum.sandypucuniversity.com/forums/forum.php
I want to thank her for getting my name out to so many photographers I would have never had the chance to meet. I’m not to great at being interviewed and she has a knack of making me and anyone very comfortable.
I’m writing this post to hopefully field some of the questions that we might not have been able to get to.
Please leave a comment and I’ll do my best to answer.
Here are a couple of the links that were discussed.
First my book. Please go take a look.
My Facebook artist page. Unfortunately Facebook only allows so many friends. Here is my Artist page. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Chuck-Arlund/60617798896?ref=hl
And my project. I Wanna Photograph You .com. Just take a look.
Thanks again everyone for your support.
Thanks Sandy for everything you do.
NOVEMBER 11 (Sunday) or 12 (Monday) 2012. 9:30am – 6:00pm | KANSAS CITY MO
If you choose Sunday, you can go again Monday if you want.
“I need to get an edge up on my competition”, “I need the Wow factor”, “I’m a natural light photographer, and I just don’t get this flash thing”
If this sounds familiar, this is the class for you.
ASK YOURSELF THIS:
Are you a natural light photographer?
Do you struggle with flash?
Are your images not as good as you would like?
Have you ever wanted to try something new photographically?
Do you have trouble posing subjects?
Do you want to keep your photography fresh?
A few Testimonials:
Cindy Harter Sims I loved learning from you in NYC it was a fabulous workshop and you were so willing to share anything anyone wanted to learn
Jennifer Johanson Sherwood Your OCF workshop was my favorite part of WPPI 2012! I can only imagine how much more you might have taught us if you’d felt better
Sherry Lynn Rickard Honestly Chuckie rocks his OCF….. but his teaching style… is dynamite! Your mind will explode with new ideas and in-site! Rock it with the man!
Kevin Gibson-Photography Chuckie wanted a testimonial so I’ll throw this out there. After a few sessions of watching and listening to Chuckie at After Dark KC I was able to go out and shoot one of my favorite senior sessions ever. I walked up to the shoot with a strobe, a vagabond, and a meter, and I walked away with confidence knowing I nailed it.
Philip Hogue Chuckie just has a way of explaining OCF so it just makes sense! (And he is just freaking cool and fun on top of it.) He teaches you not only how to use light, he teaches you how to make it simple.
