Cocktail Shots Workshop

On May 6, 2017 join Amy Shutt and Kent Moroux for a unique class that  merges craft cocktail mixing with food and beverage editorial photography using speedlights (external flashes) ! 

We all know speedlights can be intimidating to many photographers. The thing is this though: external lighting will take your photography to a new level; it is something every photographer ought to have in their skill set.  What better way to make it less intimidating and more fun than by learning how to mix gorgeous cocktails while learning how to produce beautiful photographs of them (and drink them after if you want!). 

Price: $225

When: May 6, 2017 from 2:30 pm to approx. 7:30pm (snacks provided)

Where: Amy's Studio, 7809 Jefferson Hwy Ste G, BR, La 70809

Please note: This workshop is for those with an understanding of how to shoot in manual mode and those who are interested in taking the next step and learning more about on and off camera lighting to further their skill set. You will leave the workshop understanding how to effectively light your photography subjects.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:

After a lecture by Amy on using external lighting and setting up your cameras and speedlights,   Kent Moroux -- a seasoned photographer and local attorney here in Baton Rouge-- will take over.  Kent has quite the creative side and has spent much time mixing up and perfecting craft cocktails.  He uses his photography skills to capture his creations as well.
