Choose reflectors, softboxes or umbrellas and learn the effects these have on your lighting, as you practice with a live model.

Charles has specifically requested Mother Nature provide a sunny day, with clouds, for this class, and you’ll get to experience both the worst and best times of day for creating outdoor portraits.
