After graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography and working as the still photographer for a film production studio, I didn't hesitate to take on any photography challenges. It wasn't long before I realized my photography was lacking the quality set by the industry leaders. I had the education, I had the camera gear and I had a fully equipped studio but my work just didn't have that edge! I went back to my fundamentals and realized I was not using the basic principles of lighting.
1. We will demonstrate the mechanics of available & artificial lighting.
2. Learn the relationship between your light ratio and your dynamic range.
3. Control exposure and consistency with working techniques.
Every meetup we will demonstrate a specific lighting technique and how it is used on a commercial shoot.
We welcome all levels of experience in our open meetups.
