Bogen to Host Free Lighting Webinar on Friday, March 13, 2009

Bogen is hosting a free webinar this Friday on how to create simple lighting to enhance your images.  Will Crockett, a respected pro shooter, will be leading the session and it will be held this Friday, the 13th from 2-3 PM EDT.  Registrants will also have the chance to win a Metz flash at the end – so it’s quite worthwhile aside from the valuable learning opportunity.

While I can’t join in live, I’ve gone ahead and registered because you can watch the recording for up to 24 hours afterward.  Yeah, I’ve got big Friday night plans!
