More Info

We will begin with a fundamentals lecture on posing, why lighting matters, understanding ambient exposure, controlling both the brightness and color of your light sources, and how to place your lights. We will put everything we have learned together afterwards by traveling to Willow Creek Park and shooting for two hours with a live model. Great lighting and portraiture can be done with a little technique and a single light, and by the time we finish you will know how.
