SATURDAY JANUARY 10 & 17, 2015 10:00 - 2:00 PM

Mood and atmosphere is created by quality of light - soft, hard, bounced, reflected and diffused make the overall photograph unique. Selection of the main light, shadow and fill are very important aspects of shaping the best final image. We will experiment with different light modifiers and small camera flashes to understand how each has impact on light quality, mood and direction.

Technical and creative aspects of using an off-camera strobe (the flash) - both on and off the camera - will be discussed. During the two sessions we will photograph both outside and indoors. Images will be reviewed each day. Please bring your camera, flash and off camera cord if you have one.

Limited to 12 participants.
