Lighting can make or break your photographs. Knowing how light interacts with your subject is as important as knowing how to use your camera. In this course, students tackle the technical and aesthetic concerns of both continuous source and strobe (flash) lighting. Instruction covers the use of light meters, reflectors, fill flash, soft boxes, and the safe operation of strobe equipment. Students photograph people and objects to understand the lighting problems and solutions for each. Please note: students should bring samples of their work to the first class.
Prerequisite: Students must have a working knowledge of traditional/digital manual camera functions.
