Not too long ago, standard practice for lighting large spaces involved hauling a lot of heavy equipment into a venue, laying out electrical service lines, creating support stands and scaffolding, and so on. Of course there was also tearing it all down, packing it away, and hauling it off again. Things have changed. It's now possible to carry all or most of the gear you'll need to light a large space in a duffle bag and camera bag, frequently doing it all without touching an electrical outlet and still getting an equivalent or superior result.
 
Join David Saffir and David Tobie as they explore newer methods for lighting interiors using lighting systems adapted from on-camera flash units, purpose-built remote units and triggers. We think you'll be surprised by the possibilities and impressed by the results!
 
An interactive Q&A will take place throughout the webinar to answer any questions you may have.
 
Webinar attendees will have the chance to win a SpyderCHECKR or Metz 44 Flash as well as receive exclusive discounts!

Eric Cheng spent over 10 years mastering underwater photography before deciding to try his hand at aerial videography. Now he’s already turning the industry on its head with a new innovation that allows photographers to capture above-ground footage without the massive expense of a helicopter.
 
With a background in computer science, and having been the previous Director of Photography at Lytro, Eric has a deep investment in the progression of both photography and technology. For his aerial work Eric experimented with an ordinary radio controlled drone and a simple GoPro Hero. The electronic gimbal he created with a friend is what keeps every shot flawless, unaffected by the wind, and absolutely stunning.
 
In this webinar we’ll talk to Eric about this incredible alternative to the traditional aerial photography methods, his work both underwater and above ground, and what gear is involved.
 
Date: Wednesday, October 16th
Time: 4:00pm Eastern

Topics to be Covered:
