It turns out that the studio lighting class at Rayko is actually a portrait lighting class, though it doesn’t say that anywhere in the workshop’s title or description. At least of three of my fellow students and I were there to learn product photography, so the instructor, studio manager Michael Schindler, said he might add a product staging workshop in the summer or fall. I will ask that my class fee be transferred to that future workshop or be refunded. I wouldn’t say that I didn’t learn anything in the workshop, but I didn’t learn anything that is directly applicable to what I’m currently trying to accomplish. If I were trying to take realtor photos or shoot milk ads it might be a different story.
