Women’s Shopping Event; March 22, 5:30 p.m. to closing (8:00 p.m.)

We Got This: A Hands-on Lighting Workshop; March 27, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
$25 to attend
According to Dorie, “This is the workshop that I wish someone had offered me a long time ago. I learn by doing. A lot of us do. Let us help you get past that initial fear of setting up lighting on your own.” These small, hands-on workshops are limited to six participants, creating a level of intimacy that will ensure attendees walk away with a deep understanding of photography lighting techniques. Each person will assemble a lighting set-up from start to finish, with an instructor and assistant on hand to coach along the way.
