This workshop covers lighting techniques to improve your portraits. With natural light, students learn to "see" the direction and quality of the light and then place their subjects to create either flattering or effective feelings. The class works with backlighting, reflectors, open shade and window light. With flash, the class covers using a flash both off and on the camera and a variety of modifiers. We will demo using TTL and Manual settings, and how to make beautiful fill flash. A variety of lighting techniques will be covered with the emphasis on understanding the three main aspects of light: direction, quality and depth. The class photographs models most days, both in the studio and on location.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images.
