Chroma Workshop

In this one-day workshop we will cover some or all of the following:

  • color theory overview
  • learning color temperatures
  • building up layers of color
  • blocking, blending, and bouncing colored light
  • multi-colored shadows
  • integrating gobos 
  • implementing shutter drag
  • lighting with projectors
  • multiple exposure
  • handling color files in Photoshop and Lightroom


The format: The days runs from 9-6 with an hour break for lunch. Nick demonstrates each technique by shooting tethered to a laptop so students can learn by watching. The students are then split into two groups, one with a model and one with a still-life scenario. Each student will have the opportunity to try the technique out before regrouping for the next technique. Every student will have several opportunities to work with both the model and the still-life. Classes limited to 10 spots.

Required equipment: Students should bring their camera, lenses, and memory card. Nick will provide lighting equipment for students to use. 

Refund Policy: Due to travel costs and general workshop expenses, the refund policy is as follows: greater than one month notice, a full refund will be issued. Less than one months notice, no refund will be issued. Workshops can be subject to cancellation due to insufficient enrollment. In the event of a workshop cancellation, students will be given a minimum of two months notice, and a full refund will be issued.
