Lighting is by far the most important ingredient in creating an image, it is the key to photography. Light defines the subject. Light will show or remove texture. It has the power to direct a viewer, evoke an emotion and tell a story. Light is the basis for life and the heart of a photograph. Knowing how to and use light to set the tone for your image is an art, an art that takes years to master and only moments to appreciate. The best part of photography, at least in my opinion is being able to manipulate reality while still keeping it real. An artist can create any fantasy he or she desires with the brush, but photographers must do that with light and shadow alone. 

On the other hand, light is also a science. We are ruled by physics. The two must be used together. Photography is about the “Art and Science of Lighting”. In this program, both the basic laws of light along with creative use of light will be applied in studio and location settings. We will utilize daylight, flash, strobe and ambient conditions working with no more than two light sources. You will learn valuable techniques to make your images different than your competitors. Gain the knowledge and understanding of what light, any light, will do in a given situation and then have the skills to manipulate it to your style, LIVE! Light quantity, light quality and light direction all play critical roles in your image making and in this full day class you are guaranteed to leave with the knowledge to make you a better more efficient photographer.
