Lighting is arguably one of the most important aspects of a good photograph, yet many photographers cringe at the thought of having to use artificial light, especially under time constraints and critical situations. In this five-day workshop, Kevin Kubota shares tips and techniques for creating beautiful light anywhere—with the help of simple, inexpensive tools and minimal set-up and complication.
Through live demos, we address essential lighting skills, discovering which tools are worth their weight in your camera bag. As we explore the ways that shadows can add depth, mood, and interest to images, we learn to balance flash and ambient light exposures, resulting in perfect portrait lighting in any conditions. Kevin also shows us how to get the most from the speedlight, a common yet often misunderstood (and underestimated!) lighting tool.
