By Sports Shooter Staff

Light & shadow. It sounds pretty simple...

But how do you control these two simple principles of photography to produce creative, interesting and storytelling images?

Here is a place where you can learn about lighting, working with your subjects, tryout cool lighting gear and become inspired:

There are a few openings in The Lighting Workshop presented by the Sports Shooter Academy.

This educational program will give participants the opportunity to learn and shoot with a faculty of creatives that have their images published in some of the top publications, websites, commercials and advertisements in the country. This Lighting Workshop will be held April 16-19, 2015 in Orange County, CA.

The faculty for The Lighting Workshop includes:
- Tim Mantoani (San Diego-based commercial and advertising photographer)
- David Honl (International photojournalist and creator of Honl speedlight modifiers)
- Matt Brown (Southern California-based editorial and commercial photographer and the Los Angeles Angels Director of Photography)
- Shawn Cullen (Studio and commercial assistant)
- Robert Hanashiro (USA TODAY West Coast Staff Photographer)

The Lighting Workshop will start with a full day of instruction, demos and assignment simulations. Two full days of shooting will follow and each evening participants will edit their work and receive one-on-one critiques. Both studio strobe systems and small portable lighting will be part of this program --- the emphasis will be how to apply what you experience with the equipment you have. The workshop will conclude with a slideshow and discussion of the participants’ work plus a roundtable Q & A session.

Dynalight will be providing their latest strobe gear to participants to use for their portrait shoots, including the new Baja 400 which has been receiving a lot of attention on the message board.

Nikon Professional Services will be on-site to loan cameras, lenses and speedlights to workshop participants.

Other companies supporting this event include: Samy's Camera, Think Tank Photo and Honl Photo.
