  Ascertain a solid technical foundation in portrait lighting and retouching with instructors Oscar & Jessica Lozoya as they present their full day photography class that they have presented internationally to professional photography associations. This intense, hands on photo workshop is information packed and held at Lozoya Studios in Albuquerque. The small class size allows for questions and answers to help you better understand lighting for portraiture. This is your chance to learn portrait photography from two Masters at what they do best, in their environment!
  Oscar and Jessica have both earned the Master of Photography and the Photographic Craftsman Degrees from the Professional Photographers of America.
  The day begins with a nuts & bolts approach to understanding strobe lighting including equipment, individual lighting components, lighting patterns, ratios, quality of light, how to use light to either flatter or enhance character, how to use light to create a 3D effect in portraiture, as well as the science behind how light functions all the way thru to the discussion of advanced lighting set-ups.
  Oscar Lozoya will demonstrate with a live model, how he lights for portraiture using his the multiple lighting style that has earned him some of the highest accolades in the professional photography industry. Among them are; Photographer/Director of the Year 17 times in New Mexico, 42 images accepted into the National Loan Collection, 3 Regional Medallion Awards from the American Society of Photographers, 39 Kodak Gallery Awards for Photographic Excellence and 24 Fuji Masterpiece Awards. He has had articles published on his work in Shutterbug, Rangefinder, American Photo and Professional Photographer Magazines. Oscar's work has been used in publications to promote products for companies including; Eastman Kodak, Fuji Film, Speedotron, Morris Lighting Co. and Photoflex.
  Participants will be able to work hands-on with the model, using studio strobe lighting and with Oscar there to give personalized instruction.
  Using images just captured, attendees will learn portrait retouching-techniques using Photoshop. Jessica Lozoya will demonstrate her workflow for beauty retouching while participants work on their images right along with her. Topics will include using time saving shortcuts, using layer masks, blending modes, realistic skin healing, hair smoothing, eye enhancement, minimizing shine, how to create a custom brush and other retouching methods that she has perfected over the years.
  Jessica's approach to retouching is to enhance the person's appearance while still maintaining the quality of light and the overall integrity of the subject. This style has helped her earn the best entry for Electronic Imaging 8 times in New Mexico, the State Elite Award twice from the American Society of Photographers, 9 Kodak Gallery Awards for Photographic Excellence and 9 Fuji Masterpiece Awards.
  Class size is limited to 8 in order to provide personalized attention and allow for questions and answers. Lunch will be provided.
