A photographer uses the tools of light and luminance in order to capture a certain aspect or essence of their subject. This workshop is designed to provide the photographer with essential lighting techniques, both flash and natural, to create a complex portrait. We will use different types of natural light, learning to modify and manipulate it with the use of reflectors and diffusers to explore how they each contribute to the feeling of the portrait. The use of portable flash, how they work and how to control more than one, will be fully explained and demonstrated. You will have hands-on experience each day working with flash, various modifiers, and a variety of models. Exposure techniques, histograms, and balancing light will all be covered in detail. This dynamic workshop is for photographers of of all levels who seek to make better portraits without a lot of expensive equipment.
