Hands-on Photography WorkshopAugust 30, 2020📷
David Hofmann (Sharkcookie) and Ron McKinney are excited to announce a joint indoor studio workshop on Sunday, Aug.
30, at Ron’s Crystal Lake, IL, studio, and an outdoor on-location workshop in the Crystal Lake area.
The studio workshop will be from 12-3 pm at Ron’s studio at 800 McArdle Drive, Crystal Lake IL. The outdoor location will be from 5-7:15 pm at a location near Crystal Lake to be announced later.
The studio workshop will focus on artistic edgy lighting, and how to use these type of dramatic lighting against against white backgrounds and black backgrounds. Ron and David will be instructing together throughout the studio workshop. Dancers will be provided so you’ll want to bring your camera and get some portfolio-worthy shots during the workshop.
This is designed to be a small workshop with anywhere from around 8 to as many as 20 photographers participating. Ron’s studio is 3,250 square feet. Due to the Corona virus restrictions, participants will need to wear a mask while indoors in Ron’s studio. The dancers will not be wearing a mask while they are posing.
The outdoor workshop will also have about 8-20 photographers participating. David and Ron will be setting up the dancers, explaining why they pose the dancers in certain areas based on the lighting conditions and backgrounds. It will be an incredible opportunity to get inside the heads of Ron and David to understand why they make some of the decisions they make in which helps their images turn out so amazing. They will also talk about how they work with the dancers to bring out their very best poses and action shots.
Photographers attending the outdoor workshop are encouraged to bring their camera and get some portfolio-worthy images of our dancers.
The costs of the workshop is $250 for one workshop (either studio or outdoors) or $400 for both. Any images you take during the workshop can be used for social media and marketing.
