Interior Lighting by Joe Lapeyra

What does it take to shoot stunning interior images? This program will give you a glimpse into the world of high-end interior photography seen gracing magazine features and covers on newsstands everywhere. You’ll learn about the specialized lighting tools that are essential to crafting a beautifully lit interior scene. This program will have hands-on demonstrations of the different types of “hot lights” used for interior photography and on movie sets, and present before and after images that show what a tremendous difference good lighting makes. From subtle enhancements, to dramatic effects, there’s just no substitute for creative lighting!

Guests are always welcome at our meetings, however there is a nominal $5 guest fee. Please bring cash or check. GRCC Members are always free.
