Teacher: Sara Keith

What you'll learn in this lighting class:

Photography at its core is capturing light. Capturing the best light can make or break a photo.

In this workshop, Sara will demonstrate several different types of light sources to help you choose which one is best for you, and how to use them to create your best images!

Bring your photography to the next level and finally understand how to translate light into your own image.

We’ll focus on techniques that are applicable across the board to any type of photography as we bring each lesson back to the core of photography: understanding light. 

This class is focusing on theory rather than technical. Note if you join with a mobile phone, the lessons on flash might not be applicable to mobile phones.

  • Basics of understanding light 
  • Direction of light and why it matters 
  • Diffused vs Harsh and best applications 
  • Modifiers such as diffusers and how to use them 
  • Artificial light 
  • Intro to LED lighting 
  • Intro to external flash

    Class Requirements
