Flip the Switch: Changing Your Lighting Scenario to Fit Your Flat Lay Needs
Limited Capacity seats available

It is often said that natural light is the "best" light to shoot since photographers can create beautiful images with soft, even light. But what if the light is either changing too quickly resulting in inconsistencies across images, is not ideal for one's creative vision, or is not available? In those instances, it might be time to consider using studio lighting to achieve similar results. Join Kimberly Murray as she discusses alternatives to natural light, specifically strobes, speedlights, and LEDs, and how to use them in overhead photography. In addition, she will demonstrate the placement of the light source, and how modifiers can be used to create different moods. This session will take place indoors. You should be familiar with shooting in manual mode.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn the benefits of artificial light
- Learn how different types of artificial light can be used either in place, of or alongside, natural light
- Learn how to mimic natural light with a strobe
- Learn how to combine strobes with negative fill to create "moody" images
