Beyond the Basics: Advanced Lighting Workshop | 2550 Hadley Grove S Dr | Saturday, 12. September 2020

A 3 Hour “Hands-On” Class
We recommend you take our flagship class
~ '7 Steps To better Photography' ~
before any of our advanced classes!

This 3-hour class is “hands-on” and is limited to only 10 students!

Let’s **** it, lighting can make or break a photograph! Join Jim as he shows you how to see, control, and manipulate light to enhance your photographs.

In this class Jim will cover:

Why lighting is SO Important -
The right lighting scenario can turn a 2-dimensional image into a 3-dimensional masterpiece that will literally jump off the paper. Jim will take the time to show you how to see light as you’ve never seen it before. He will demonstrate how light works may it be indoor or outdoor. “Lighting principles are universal. Light is the same no matter where you are or what equipment you use!” Jim Wyant.

How lighting effects, the overall feel or mood of the shot -
What is hard light, what is soft light and how does it affect the overall feel of the image? Jim also discusses how the quality, intensity and different colors of light can also create specific moods.

Ambient (natural) versus Artificial light –
When and how do you use ambient light? When and how do you use artificial light including a flash or continuous lighting? Bruce will demonstrate the difference between in-camera, on camera, and off-camera flash. If you have a flash unit, we suggest that you bring it. The use of reflectors and scrims will also be shown and demonstrated.

Studio Primer 101 –
Even though you probably aren’t interested in becoming a pro or studio photographer, Bruce is going to show you what it’s like using 1, 2, 3, 4 or more studio lights. You’ll learn the difference between a Fill, Main or Key light, Accent or Kicker light. The lesson to be learned is that you can literally paint with light. This part of the class is a true eye-opener.

Light Direction –
What does it take to create a dramatic photograph? One of the major factors is how you light your subject. The more dramatic the lighting and lighting pattern, the more impact your image will have. Jim is a master at showing you how your lighting can flatter any kind of subject.

“After spending 3 hours with Jim in this class, you will come away with a newfound appreciation for how light plays a major role in photography. This class will be a “game-changer” in instantly improving the quality of your image creation!” ~ Mark G., Bellingham
