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.

This review is for the Hudson's Photo Workshops only. I came across there group while searching for a photography class. I was looking for something with a decent price, not a huge commitment, and in my area. So this looked like a win win (and I didn't even get the groupon, full price was still a great deal). I finally got a chance to take the class last weekend and was so pleasantly impressed. Bruce teaches the classes, and he is friendly, funny, personable, informative and patient. All the things you need when trying to learn something new. I felt in the four hour intro class I gained all I needed to to get me going, anything more and my brain would not have digested. They do offer extended classes which I will be signing up for very soon!

I had the pleasure of meeting Bruce and his son Josh while partaking in a 4-hour, 7-steps to improving your photography class. The level of detail, customer service and overall commitment to the craft was evident from the moment we walked in the door. Although a large portion of the class had called and cancelled, Bruce still taught the class for the five of us who did show up. I have a little camera knowledge, but found the instruction and tips extremely useful. Bruce truly is an artist and I would highly recommend them for classes, and photos for your collection.

I took the 4 Hour Photography Class using one of those Discount social coupons. The class was more about technique and settings on your camera. If you don't know how to change settings on your camera bring the manual. The class will definitely improve your photos. The lighting demo was the best part. It did go over the 4 hours mostly due to 20 minutes in the beginning of the class that was like a commercial for Hudson's. If he nixed that part I would have given 5 stars.
