Hybrid Learning Class
This two-session technical workshop focuses on methods of naturalistic lighting. Designed for beginners, we will discuss making use of natural light as well as interior available light. The history of naturalistic lighting in paintings, cinema and photography will be explored and used for inspiration.
Over one weekend, the class will delve into various topics, including exposing for naturalistic lighting, direction and texture of light, how to pose people to make use of natural light, how to use things like reflectors and negative fill, how to use backlight effectively, how to manage color temperature, and practical solutions to in-the-field lighting challenges.
Part of the class will be working with models. This course will include lectures, critiques, and assignments to foster a greater understanding of how to employ naturalistic lighting effects for photographic image-making.
Stella Kalinina is a Russian-Ukrainian American photographer based in Los Angeles working on contemplative stories about our connections to each other, our personal and communal histories, and the places we inhabit. She brings empathy, curiosity, and a collaborative approach to portrait-based stories that are firmly rooted in the sense of place. Kalinina is a graduate of ArtCenter College of Design and the University of Pennsylvania and a member of Women Photograph. She crafts visual stories for publications, institutions, and commercial clients and works on long-term personal documentary projects.
