    • Shutterfest is an annual conference unlike any other. You can experience it in your own way. By taking classes all day or you can choose to shoot like I did this year. I was completely focused on getting images. The beauty of a Shutterfest environment you have the flexibility to decide how you want to enjoy your investment in time and money.

    • Can you give a bit more detail about what the classes are like? Is it just listening essentially to a lecture or any shooting/positioning the lights yourself?

      And by "choosing to shoot" do they just have lighting setups and models ready to shoot?

      I hear a lot of people in the local pro groups talk about these conferences but I don't have much of a frame of reference. All my formal training comes from a BFA and my track was more fine art than commercial if that helps.

    • Can you give a bit more detail about what the classes are like?

      The classes are one of three categories lectures, hands on, and demonstrations.

      Is it just listening essentially to a lecture or any shooting/positioning the lights yourself?

      Some of the hands on classes shared triggers for lighting that they setup.

      And by "choosing to shoot" do they just have lighting setups and models ready to shoot?

      This year Profoto had lightning setups with triggers and models when classes were not being held during the day. There were also opportunities to Rent A Human and do private shoots with the models. There were also several situations where there were scattered around the vendors mini sets that models rotated every hour on the hour.
