Description: You have probably heard people say it’s all about the light, and it’s true. The light falling on the subject is just as important as the subject itself. If the light is not there, there is no picture. One of the best ways to learn to see light is in the studio, because in the studio you control the light creating the effect the light has on the subject. Once you learn to light you can more readily recognize good lighting situations in the field. We will use the studio lighting equipment in the studio to demonstrate the principals including electronic flash and other methods from a constant light source, like window light hot and cold lights and more.
