In the creation of a great image, light—whether natural or artificial—is essential. Every characteristic of light can be controlled, altered and recreated. This workshop explores those many possibilities to create visually engaging images. Students learn a clear understanding of lighting theory and its relationship to form, texture and content. The course also covers tools for measuring, creating and shaping light in both indoor and outdoor situations, using daylight, strobes and hot lights. The goal is to give the photographer a tool set for using light in any situation, always serving the creative vision.
