Bay Professional Photographers Association commissioned International Wedding Photographer, Matthew Sowa, to conduct an instructional and interactional program for both BPPA Members and Non-Members. The title of the program is Shooting With a Strong Natural Light. Using models, Matthew Sowa will share how he photographs in situations when lighting presents a challenge. Since this is an interactional program, please bring your camera so you can photograph right along with Mr. Sowa. There will be a live shooting in which you can use Christine's triggers and lights if needed. Weather permitting, there may be some outdoor shooting. For that you may want to bring your speedlight or studio lights, but please keep them in the car until that time. Parking is available on the street or the paid parking lot diagonal to the studio. Masks are optional.
Born in Poland, Matthew Sowa earned a degree in photography from the primary Warsaw College of Photography and has received additional training and study at the Institute of Art Photography in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
