Advanced Lighting Techniques

On September 6, 2022, I’m partnering with George P. Joell, III to offer a PPA Workshop on Advanced Lighting Techniques.

“This course will go beyond the basics of lighting. We will dive deep into lighting techniques for individuals, couples, and groups. We will start with one light and progress to a five-light setup. We will use lighting to scalp the body and target areas of the scene for a specific look and feel. We will use modifiers, grids, reflectors, and barn doors to direct the light. Although a basic understanding of the exposure triangle is required, we will discuss how to manipulate ISO, aperture, and shutter speed to create a dynamic image. We will discuss broad, short, split, loop, and butterfly lighting techniques. This class is for photographers of all skill levels with a basic understanding of Off-camera Lighting(OCL) in the studio and on location. This class will be a combination of lecture and hands-on.”

This in-person workshop takes place on Tuesday, September 6, 2022, from 9 am till 4 pm at George P. Joell, III Photography studio located at 7716 Raeford Rd, Suite C, in Fayetteville, NC. Click the link below for details, including registering via PPA’s website.
