Brief course description
Have you ever heard a photographer say, “Oh the light there is perfect,” and not understood what they meant? Do you feel like you have trouble finding good lighting while you are out with a camera?
Spotting great lighting is not a gift, it is Skill. It is a learned art, one that artists like Caravaggio used to become one of the greatest artists of the Baroque era. From generation to generation every famous photographer of the 20th century used these techniques, which can be found on the covers of Vogue to National Geographic. Claude Monet and Michelangelo did not “hope” for good lighting, they knew exactly where to find and now, you will know where to look too!
This course looks at finding light, anytime, anywhere in the world. Whether you are on the streets in Berlin or inside of your friend’s home…creating pictures that glow is something that you can practice and master be knowing where to look. This is a comprehensive solution to lighting that does not rely on “post production” or “expensive equipment” to make great photographs.
