Profoto‘s John Williamson will be in Columbus February 15-16 for two awesome events. On Friday, Feb. 15 join us for the Lighting for Portraiture seminar, where John will cover everything from different lighting styles to how to set a proper exposure. Then, on Saturday, Feb. 16 we’re hosting Advanced Lighting Techniques Workshop, where John will coach participants during a real-life studio shoot at Roharik Studios with a professional model. This is five-hours of hands-on experience that will help you become a better studio photographer while allowing you to build your portfolio. There are only 12 available spots for Saturday’s workshop, so sign up today!
