We are so excited for the upcoming Beauty and Light Seminar in Philadelphia, PA on September 14, 2014. We’ve been getting lots of great feedback and thought it might be helpful to share a few FAQ’s with everyone before registration opens on July 24, 2014.
What skill level is this for?
All skill levels are welcome, but photographers will benefit most from the content if they are familiar with the exposure triangle and shooting in manual mode.
Will there be hands-on shooting?
Yes, we will be working on location after the presentations at the end of the day (3-5 PM). Bring your camera or smart phones to practice what you’ve learned. The featured speakers will also be available for questions and assistance during this time.
What if I don’t have an iPhone? Will I still benefit from that topic?
Most of the content will cover apps specific to iPhones, but all smart phones are welcome and many universal themes (exposure, composition, use of light, etc.) will be discussed.
What time can we check in? What’s the schedule for the day?

Can I get a refund it I change my mind or can’t make it?

What should I bring?
Please bring a camera and any other natural light gear (lenses, etc.), paper and pen (or writing material of choice), smart/camera phone, and any light snacks you might want (optional).
Can I bring my children?
In order to provide an optimal learning environment for everyone involved, we ask that children please not attend.
