Have you ever wondered how some magazine photos are created and why they look the way they look and how you can do the same? This course will introduce several lighting concepts and techniques from my experience in fashion, glamor and magazine photography. Each technique will be explained and demonstrated and diagrams will be provided. Discussion will include necessary equipment and gear suggestions, lighting position, intensity, quality and other factors. The objective of this course is to introduce attendees to various kinds of lighting used in fashion and editorial photography and how to successfully apply them to portraiture. Concepts covered will include single light and multiple light setups, combining flash with outdoor and ambient lighting, working with reflectors and gels. Tips on retouching and post production will also be discussed. By the end of the course attendees should be able to apply several new lighting concepts and techniques to their portraiture and wedding businesses.
