Creative Control Using Natural Light FILLING
Limited Capacity filling up

How you choose to use the light can take a simple image and create something truly magical. Kristin is a confessed light geek and loves to look for and use light in unique and creative ways that are unexpected. She prefers to get the light right in camera and use editing tools only to enhance if needed. Join Kristin and other light seekers as she explains how she looks for the best available light, and her approach to capturing it in a way that elevates her work. Attendees will learn what apertures work best to capture flares, rim light, and silhouettes. We will also look for shadows, and how harsh light used right can create a totally different look in your imagery. Together we will meet at an outdoor location and look for and explore how using: open shade, backlight, harsh light, and low light can change the mood or feeling of an image. This class would be great for the beginner who is starting to explore different uses of light, and for the intermediate or advanced photographer who is looking for different ways to be creative with natural light. We will be working with one to two models to use for subject placement and proper exposure. She will explain how to incorporate and use the environment and still life at our shooting destination.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn what apertures and perspectives work best for different uses of light
- Learn about subject placement for use of backlight, open shade and harsh light
- Learn about and practice with creative uses of outdoor natural light
