Seeing the Light - Sold Out
Wednesdays: 10:30-1:00 pm
6 Sessions: 4/20 - 6/1

As photographers, there is nothing more important than seeing and harnessing light. It’s important to know how to work with ambient light, but sometimes the ambient light is not as cooperative as we would like. Either it’s in the wrong place or there’s not enough to light our subject properly. This workshop will focus on supplementing ambient light with both continuous light sources (lamps, flash lights, etc.) and with basic flash. We will also discuss white balance, how to neutralize unwanted color casts and also how to use the colors of light in dramatic ways.
