About this Event
Why lighting is SO Important –
The right lighting scenario can turn a 2-dimensional image into a 3-dimensional masterpiece that will literally jump off the paper. Bruce will take the time to show you how to see light like you’ve never seen it before. He will demonstrate how light works may it be indoor or outdoor. “Lighting principles are universal. Light is the same no matter where you are or what equipment you use!” Bruce Hudson
How lighting effects, the overall feel or mood of the shot –
What is hard light, what is soft light and how does affect the overall feel of the image? Bruce also discusses how the quality, intensity and different color of light can also create specific moods.
Ambient (natural) verses Artificial light –
When and how do you use ambient light? When and how do you use artificial light including flash a or continuous lighting. Bruce will demonstrate the difference between in camera, on camera and off camera flash. If you have a flash unit, we suggest that you bring it. The use of reflectors and scrims will also be shown and demonstrated.
Studio Primer 101 –
Even though you probably aren’t interested in becoming a pro or studio photographer, Bruce is going to show you what it’s like using 1, 2, 3, 4 or more studio lights. You’ll learn the difference between a Fill, Main or Key light, Accent or Kicker light. The lesson to be learned is that you can literally paint with light. This part of the class is a true eye opener.
Light Direction –
What does it take to create a dramatic photograph? One of the major factors is how you light your subject. The more dramatic the lighting and lighting pattern, the more impact your image will have. Bruce is a master at showing you how your lighting can flatter any kind of subject.
