One of the most important skills to learn as a photographer is how to see light. If you can imagine your favorite place, is it dark and moody lighting coming from a single over head light or a room with big widows and soft bright light. Wherever it is, take a good hard look at the lighting. In this course, More to Photography Part 5, we will teach you how to take advantage of any type of lighting, whether dark and sparse, or light and bright. This class will help you see light as a photographer sees it.
Using Available Light
Not every shoot is going to be ideal when it comes to lighting, in fact most are entirely not ideal. It's important to be able to make the best of any situation and know how to work the light in any room or environment. We'll talk about the the direction of light, the quality of light, the size of light, etc and how to use it to your advantage.
Who knew there were so many different types of light? As a photographer, its crucial to be able to come to a shoot prepared with the right type of light, whether that means bringing your own continuous lights, or having them setup in a studio ready to go. We'll teach you when is best to use continuous light, and how to set it up.
On Camera Flash
Sometimes it can be hard to know what the light is going to be like for a certain shoot. You won't always know the setting or details of an event, so its important to be prepared. Learn what situations an on camera flash works well in, and how it can turn bad lighting to great lighting.
Off Camera Flash
The last type of lighting we'll cover is off camera flash. Although it can be a more complicated type of lighting with more preparation, its definitely a skill to know and a type of lighting you'll want to have in your portfolio.
Be sure to bring your camera because this class includes hands on shooting using available light along with reflectors or off camera flash to give your photos an enhanced natural light look. This class is for beginning and intermediate photographers with basic understanding of their camera and exposure control.
This class will be taught by Jens Nielsen.
