Workshop: Location Lighting

with Sean McCormick

September 30, 2018 at 10:00am

Students will learn how to analyze available light situations and use techniques to modify the existing light to suit their needs.  The class will primarily deal with using sunlight and will begin with some classroom instruction before moving outside. Students will be trained to identify light quality, source and direction of light and then taught to use a range of simple and specialized equipment that can diffuse, bounce and block light. Techniques and equipment will be drawn from both still photography and motion picture industries.  When properly trained and equipped, a photographer will be able to make excellent photos outside at any time of day.
