About the Class

Shooting outdoors using natural light can be challenging—clouds, too much sun or a strong wind, and your moment is gone. In this class, PPA instructor Jamie Hayes gives you the fundamentals you need to successfully use natural light and make the most of your outdoor opportunities.

Just like real estate, natural light is all about location. The class is actually filmed in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, so you’ll get live demos as Jamie teaches you how to position and adjust your subjects so that faces are evenly lit, backgrounds are separated and you create the best effect…all while outside. And Jamie doesn’t stop there. You’ll also learn about the following:

  • Using camera presets and other white balance options to handle the outdoor variables.
  • Choosing the best reflectors for outdoors and positioning them correctly.
  • Metering the light in two different ways.
  • Using and managing off-camera flashes for the right amount of light outside.

Are you ready to maximize your outdoor shots with great lighting? You will be when Jamie’s done! Watch today and learn how to master the outdoors.
