Seattle's John Cornicello has been making beautiful photographs all his life. He is known for his portraits, but even more so for his lighting. John's hands-on, small-group workshop will focus on sharpening your lighting skills and putting you in the know about lighting.
This workshop will start with the basics of light--what is it, what qualities does it have, and how does it works. Is all light good? How can you use light? How can you use light in ways you want in a portrait setting? Students will also be taking portraits of each other (or of the mannequin, if you prefer). Bring your camera!
This workshop will help you know and understand the answers to questions like these: What is hard light? What is soft light? Does light source matter? How can you modify the light? What do we see when we see the light? What are the transitions? What are the types of reflections? What's the inverse square law, and why should I care? What's the angle of incidence, and why should I care?
Can light act like makeup? What are catch lights? What is split, Rembrandt, loop, butterfly, Paramount? Is broad light better for short people, and is short light better for broad people, or what? How do you feather light, and is a bird wing involved? Does lens choice matter? How do you solve problems like eyeglasses? Oily skin? Fat faces?
You will learn all of this and more. And you will practice it. Don't miss this amazing opportunity to learn from a lighting master.
You can learn more about John and see more of his work on his website at Cornicello Photography.
