Good light, it's all about the lighting, lighting is everything. What do those sayings mean? Hearing them never helped me light anything.
In this 3 hour program you'll learn what those sayings mean and how to work towards them. We need to as lighting is more important than camera brand, lens used or how much you spent on gear. After all, Photography literally translates to "writing with light".
Lighting can make images look crisp, sculpted and three dimensional or flat, muddy and two dimensional with poor saturation. The difference lighting can make between an image looking sharp & crisp verse soft is more dramatic than any lens upgrade. In fact, the best lenses you can buy won't look much, if any, better without the elusive "good light". Hard, soft, diffused, direct and point source light you'll come away understanding with lots of hands-on examples you create during this lesson.
You'll also come away understanding when you photograph landscapes, portraits or table top subjects they all share the same considerations. If you "learn" how to make any of those look their best you'll have the lighting knowledge to photograph the others. You'd be surprised how few photographers, comparatively speaking, learn lighting. Most just do what they were told, or stumbled upon accidentally. There are schools that specialize in teaching lighting which are very expensive that you attend for years. Take this lesson and you'll learn a good chunk of what they teach.
Camera with charged battery, lens(es) and memory card with room for 100 pictures (empty card preferred). Notepad & pen or pencil. Good idea is beverages and snacks. We may be working both in and outdoors.
