Workshop Program

12pm Introduction & Connections Circle

Welcome to the circle!  We will do a short intro to the day's plans and then we will do introductions and connect the circle in a new way.

12:30am Styles of Lighting 

Learn about and practice ways to use flash and ambient light and help you decide which works best for you.  Study the pros and cons of each and how to maintain consistency in your work.

1:30pm In the Spotlight

An attendee or two will get to show off their website while we go over what is working and what could make it stronger.  We will look at images, content, and basic site set up. We will cover as many website sites as we have time for!

2:30pm  Break

Quick 15 minute potty break... because everyone has to go!

2:45pm Workflow with 17 Hats

Our speaker will show you how to set up and implement a workflow using the 17 Hats Studio Management program.  Learn how workflows can help you be more productive and keep up with multiple clients at a time.

3:30pm Lunch Break

Run and grab your lunch or join us nearby to have lunch with us!  We will be eating and chatting and getting to know each other better while we take a break, relax and recharge!

5:30pm Topic to be announced 

More info coming soon!

6:30pm Finding The Story

In small groups, collaborate to find the story within the images presented by our speaker.  Learn to see the story BEYOND the obvious.  Work to see all the aspects of an image that tell the story so that you can apply them more effectively to your own work.  Part of being able to tell someone's story comes from understanding the elements that create it in an image.  

7:15pm Close & Group Photo

So sad to say goodbye!  But it doesn't have to be the end.  You can see us again at the next tour stop, at Off-Call in 2017 or you can set up one-on-one mentoring!
