In-Person Learning Class

In this experimental workshop we’ll play with many lighting styles, from the basics like soft boxes and umbrellas, to more alternative methods such as using ordinary desk lamps, flashlights and portable LED panels. We’ll discuss the reasons for choosing one lighting approach over another, both as it pertains to a specific subject and environment, and also how those choices will begin to define your own personal style. In addition, students will be challenged to rethink all of their basic assumptions about lighting, and encouraged to push through whatever personal artistic boundaries they’ve created for themselves.

This class will cover a wide range of creative lighting approaches that are both practical and affordable. The goal of this fun and explorative workshop is to provide students with a greater awareness of creative and “alternative” methods of lighting their subjects.

This course is strictly limited to 12 students.
