Our Workshop Partners…
At Soft Lite Studios we are very fortunate in that we get to experience some of the best tools, best post-production techniques and best vendors in the imaging market place. From time to time we run across a product, a tool or a supplier, that meshes perfectly with our idea of providing our participants with access to tools and techniques that ultimately lead to better images. When that confluence happens we strive to work closely with that vendor and provide our workshop participants with not only insight into using these select tools, but with better prices for them as well. Below are products, or suppliers, that represent what we feel are some of the best in the industry.
