If you're reading this chances are you consider yourself a photographer in some form or another. Or at the very least you own a camera and you like to make pictures. But how many of you can say that you're proficient or even familiar with photographic lighting? The word photographer is formed from two other greek words that when taken together mean one who writes with light. Knowing how to control a camera is only half the story if you don't also know how to control your light. Lighting can be very intimidating at first. You can't always see what it's doing so you don't always know how to intuitively control it. It's also not always obvious why you may need to use artificial lighting or modify the light you've already got. However one thing is certain, learning how to light will improve your photography at least as much as, if not more, learning how to use your camera did.
This event is a brief survey of the wonders of photographic lighting. It is by no means a comprehensive course on the topic. However you will still learn things and get a peek into the rabbit hole of what it means to write with light. You only need to bring your eyeballs and an interest to learn.
