Controlling and Modifying Light
Every photographer encounters situations that require different lighting. Every subject has unique
features that you may want to enhance or diminish. You may want to create a particular mood or elicit
a specific emotion. And sometimes you just need a variety of looks. All of this can be achieved by
controlling how we light our subjects.
In this program Dawn will share how she uses a variety of lighting modifiers and techniques to make
each session unique. You’ll leave this program with new ideas about how to use various modifiers to increase your creativityand your bottom line.
Modifiers that we will discuss in the program may include Soft Boxes, Strip lights, Eye-lighter, Beauty Dish, Ring light and umbrellas. This will be a live, interactive demonstration so be sure to bring your cameras.
Demystifying Off Camera Flash
Love the look of Off Camera Flash (OCF) but don’t quite understand how it works? Join Dawn for this outdoor workshop and take the mystery out of using your flash outdoors. You’ll learn to find the
balance of available light with off camera flash for a natural look. Once you understand the basics of
balancing the light you can then move to more dynamic ratios to achieve a variety of dramatic looks.
