Photography Workshop - Spirit-N-Light in Paso Robles

The Spirit-N-Light workshops with Piper Mackay are designed to develop your skills in creating powerful images using dramatic natural lighting, an element that can be the difference between a snapshot and a great shot. Having a strong focus on one critical element, with exciting subjects and in an inspiring environment, can have greater impact on learning your craft and elevating your photography.

Nestled in a valley surrounded by majestic rolling hills, this all-inclusive workshop takes place on a true working ranch. The wranglers will run the horses through the stunning landscape, creating loads of photographic opportunities for action shots, including stirring up the dust for moody elements and silhouettes at sunset. Although there will be a concentrated focus on dramatic lighting, we will also work on creating more interesting compositions and pan blurs as well as demonstrate how to creatively use shutter speeds to exaggerate movement. During midday, we will work on portraits and learn how to manipulate shadows and natural light so that you can shoot during the harsh light and make every minute count while in the field. I will share some of the natural lighting techniques I use to simulate off-camera flash. We will cover the four most critical elements in creating a successful photograph, which will make your images stand above the millions flooding the Internet every day.
