An introductory lighting course for people who love photography and want to be more skilled in the use of light.

Learn about natural light, use of fill, artificial continuous light, strobe light (flash) and the art of mixing strobe and continuous light. Over the course of six months, we meet once a month for four hours. In this course, will learn to analyze light and shadow in images from books and magazines to help deepen awareness of light. You will also gain hands-on practice through the assignments.

The assignments for each class are designed to encourage you to work on your own. Assignments include studies of light patterns, light height, modifiers, ratios, replication assignments, and more.  You are invited to explore your particular goals for photography.

Qualifications:

Photographers should have knowledge of Photoshop and/or Lightroom. Homework is submitted digitally via Photoshop or Lightroom to be projected during class for commentary. Photographers will need to have access to (and know how to use) a digital camera that has independent shutter speed and aperture controls as well as a hot shoe. Additionally, photographers need to access a studio during the month between classes. This may be through rental studios in the area or in our own home setting.
