Mastering the skill of lighting on location takes planning in addition to technical savvy. Photographers must be capable of scouting an appropriate location, assessing how time of day will affect the outcome, and determining what quality of light will best facilitate the mood of the picture. Will it be a blend of ambient and artificial light, or does the strobe dominate? Do we use direct or indirect light, hard or diffuse light? How do we adapt to organic changes in the physical environment? This workshop is designed to help answer these questions.

The class begins with a little tech talk to provide students a fundamental understanding on the basic physics of light. This discussion will apply directly to photography and will be put to use throughout the workshop. We will move on to working with subtleties of natural light and then the integration of artificial light. Students will discover how equipment choice can affect the mood of an image by experimenting with various light sources and modifiers such as bounces, diffusion material, umbrellas, soft boxes and grids. Basic as well as more complex lighting setups will be demonstrated and discussed. Emphasis will be placed upon utilizing the surrounding environment to the photographer’s advantage. The goal is to provide each student with basic knowledge for seeing and working with light on location and the confidence to use natural and artificial light in various conditions.

The workshop will include hands-on shooting sessions with models, including a shoot date at Pasadena City Hall and one other location to be determined. Students should have a digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera capable of manual exposure settings and a hot shoe or sync connection.
