9:30am-10:45am: Off-Camera Strobe – Perfectly Lit Portraiture with the Profoto B2
Pictureline's lighting expert, David Ward, will guide you through a hands-on portraiture workshop lighting a bride and groom with compact Profoto B2 off-camera strobes and Profoto light-shaping tools.
The B2 is the world's first off-camera flash that can be used both on and off-camera. It offers full TTL operation, recharges rapidly after full-power fire, and is high speed sync compatible to freeze motion.
We encourage participants to bring their cameras to this workshop.
At the age of 12 I stole a camera from my dads closet and never returned it (sorry Dad). The camera was a way to document my love of the outdoors and especially documenting my love of rock climbing. This triggered a lifelong love of photography. After learning natural light photography and the use of reflectors to direct the sun I’ve moved into using external lighting to give me the ultimate control of the image.
For the past 7 years Dave has been an instructor at pictureline covering the basics of photography, getting to know your camera classes, lighting with speed lights, and studio lighting.
Dave recently spent a week in Sweden with Andrea Belluso learning about the many light shaping tools available to Profoto users.

2pm - 3:30pm: Shooting Wedding Imagery with Continuous Light Sources
Wedding photographers and videographers offer timeless captures of the beauty and emotion displayed on a wedding day, but these moments shouldn't be limited to the ambient lighting of the venue. Join us for a hands-on learning opportunity as we explore portable continuous light sources that will supplement your strobe-lit photographs and save the videos of your candle-lit dances. Practice with portable, bi-colored LED lighting, like Westcott's new 1'x1' Flex waterproof mats. Bring your cameras so you can see for yourself just how on and off-camera LED light sources can transform your wedding imagery.
I'm a Canon girl, I have been ever since I got the Canon 1D from Pictureline during the Olympics. I'm currently shooting with the Canon 5D Mark III bodies. As for lighting, I shoot with 3 of the 600EX Canon Speedlights, a Profoto B1 lighting kit, and a set of the Westcott Flex panel LED lights.
Photography has been a part of my life since I was 14 and a family friend gave me their old camera. It was a Canon AE-1 and I took it everywhere. Imagine my delight when in college, someone said that if I kept working hard and training, that I could be a professional. You mean, I'd get PAID to take pictures??? It was like someone had told me that I could get paid for eating ice cream! So, choosing to be a photographer as my career wasn't a difficult decision. Deciding which type of photography to specialize in, though, was harder. I kept thinking that I wanted to be a National Geographic photographer and travel the globe, but one day I read an article that said they were all divorced and spent months and months at a time away from their children. Photographing joyful events made much more sense for my personality, so wedding was a perfect fit!
