San Francisco's Adolph Gasser Photography, a camera shop and photography lab that also offers rental cameras in the San Francisco area, is promoting its ongoing lighting classes and workshops: “Introduction to Studio Lighting” and “Beyond the Basics Studio Lighting,” both with Richard Dischler.

“Introduction to Studio Lighting” is a two-hour introductory class where participants will learn basic studio lighting techniques for portrait photography with the use of hot lights and studio flash units. This is the prerequisite class for “Beyond the Basics of Studio Lighting,” and is offered once a month, from 10 a.m. to noon, through December for a fee of $49.95.

In “Beyond the Basics Studio Lighting,” students practice techniques for portrait photography using a light meter, the manual settings on their camera, model posing and lighting ratios. This hands-on class is offered once a month through December, from 1 to 4 p.m., and costs $79.95.

"Please bring your camera and be ready to experience three hours of portrait photography," John Gasser of Adolph Gasser Photography said. "You must be prepared to set the custom white balance and manual controls of your camera."

In addition, Adolph Gasser Photography is renting the new Nikon D800 Camera in the still digital rental department. One of the most popular items in the video sales department is the GoPro Hero camera, though Gasser carries a wide variety of different cameras and accessories from them.

Adolph Gasser’s photo lab services include online printing, e-6, black and white and c-41 processing. It can also scan old family photos and put them on a CD for customers to archive and reprint.

Gasser also offers video transfers from 8 millimeter, 16 millimeter and Super 8 to DVD. Additionally, it can put audio tapes and reel-to-reel audio to a CD.
