Lighting at the Castle

Eagle Castle Winery in Infrared

We took the class up to Paso Robles today for some lighting on location work. We ended up at Eagle Castle Winery. For those unfamiliar, the Moorish castle above is the winery tasting room and event facility. The winery itself is located just to the east of the building pictured above.

The castle proved a stunning setting for our models, the Profoto lighting systems, and, of course, our students. We shot for just over three hours practicing everything learned earlier in the week. All in all it was an excellent final shoot.

Upon return to the Institute, we had a wine, martini, and appetizer night. The Thursday night "party" has become somewhat of a fixture here at the school. It is really nice to unwind and spend some time with the class before the frantic Friday workflow begins.
