Discover Light

is a course geared to Intermediate and Advanced photographers, although beginners are welcome to attend. Our discussion will start with using the natural light around us and move on to creating light with speed lights; continuous lights and studio lights. We will define and examine different types of light. With this knowledge we will look at ways to recognize and use light in your own photography. You will come away with a good understanding of the principles of light and some strategies for improving your photography.
