Complex Lighting Made Simple

with Sam Tarrel 

M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr., CPP, DFP-OR

Throughout every photographer’s career and no matter how successful an individual is – we all start in the same place. That place is learning the basics of light and in this class, that’s exactly what we will be focusing on.

We will discuss the properties of light and differentiate between quality and quantity. We will talk about how light interacts with the human face and the best way to flatter any subject and achieve any look!

Specific points of discussion will include:

  • Measuring light
  • Modifying light
  • Lighting types
  • Lighting patterns
