Perfect People Pictures Using Your Flash!

Overview

In this introduction to portraiture and portrait lighting, you will learn the foundations of making great photographs of people using an auxiliary flash. First we will have a lecture covering the essentials of using flash to get great people shots and then we will travel to a nearby park to put what we've learned into practice with a live model.

 

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.

 

What You’ll Learn

  • Posing essentials
  • Explanation of ambient exposure
  • Controlling the brightness and color of your light sources
