Natural light can provide some of the most beautiful and flattering of all portrait lighting. Although it is free and available to everyone, natural light requires a unique understanding of which situations work best when photographing people. Tim will guide you through the process of recognizing, modifying and manipulating natural light in the creation of beautiful and creative images.
This full day course,
Finding and Mastering Natural Light
, emphasizes the skill sets needed to find, manipulate and master natural lighting environments as they pertain to portraiture. You will experience the subtlety of natural lighting and how to use it creatively. Tim will also demonstrate techniques for bringing light to the natural environment through simple reflectors, use of flash and High Speed Sync. This day will have many hands-on photographic opportunities.
This course can be an important step in improving your photography and enabling you to advance to more refined and expressive imagery!
