“Photo Lighting Basics Made Easy” is a great interactive class that will take some of the mystery out of lighting. We will discuss the different types of light and their properties; including color temperature, specularity and intensity.

We will cover different types of lighting sources: electronic flash, both tungsten and daylight fluorescent continuous light, and how to control those lights with light modifiers, including collapsible reflectors, umbrellas and soft boxes. You'll get some great tips and demonstrations on how to manipulate these lights.

Requirements: Bring your DSLR camera, with a mid range zoom lens, so you can learn first hand and see the results of different techniques and light modifiers. A lighting set-up and live model will be provided so you can get the most out of this informative seminar.

Attendees should have a basic understanding of manual exposure and be able to set their DSLR for “custom” white balance.
