A little about myself.........I've been a successful commercial photographer for 25 years. In that time, I've also been an adjunct instructor in photography at The Sage Colleges and St. Rose teaching Photo 1 & 2 and Studio Lighting, for over 15 years. I love to associate with others who love the world of image making as much as I do.
This is the first class of a multi-level training in the art of creating light from scratch to achieve YOUR desired result. Please bring your cameras and possibly (but not completely necessary) your tripods. A confident working knowledge of your camera will be to your great advantage.
This is a class that will explain and demonstrate the principles of LIGHTING in the studio with respect to product, basic still-life and portrait photography. The topics to be discussed are as follows:
- The use of "everyday household lights when studio strobes are not available.
- Controlling light in close quarters. Some basic tools and techniques you can use anywhere.
- Color of light and how to control, or change it, in a controlled environment.
- Use of light meters to build the desired contrast ratio, both reflective (in camera) and incident (hand-held).
- Introduction to studio strobe units and how they are similar and different to on-camera flash units.
