Michelle L. Thomas, CPP
The day will start with some basic information on controlling light, which is not on your camera. There are many different light sources and objects in our environment that can add and take away light. Together we will identify those objects and figure out where we should introduce or subtract light by using off camera lighting or gobos. A gobo is something that subtracts light and adds shadows in case you are wondering. You will practice adding light to your subject by using objects available to you that create reflection, such as a light surface, reflectors, and mirrors. To take away light we will do the opposite by identifying dark surfaces in our surroundings. After identifying where you need to use added flash or continuous lighting, you will have an opportunity to practice by capturing some images both with and without using introduced lighting. With the remaining time we will compare and contrast our images and discuss the results.
