Event Details

Lighting is at the very core of photography. Without light, there would be no photography. The very word photography comes from the greek words graphe (to draw) and photos (light). When we take a picture, we are doing just that, we are drawing with light. Light is what literally makes a photograph. It’s the raw material. When we talk about good light, what do we mean? How can we use this raw material to literally shape and define our subjects? How can we use this with finesse to create better images? This class is intended to help you understand light. To speak its language. To become fluent in it. We take light for granted. When we begin to “see” light the way a camera does, we can begin to draw with it in a more meaningful and powerful way.

 

About the Instructor:

 

Clifford Pickett is professional commercial photographer, event photographer and educator based in NYC. He first picked up a camera while spending a year traveling through Europe after having earned his MBA early. Like many travelers, that passion for seeing and experiencing the world is precisely what ignited the spark for photography. Clifford has spent all of his time since learning how to see and capture the world with the fresh eyes that traveling affords. He hasn't been shooting for 40 years, he hasn't been alive for 40 years. He hasn't been classically trained in the fine arts either. He is entirely self taught, through books, workshops, seminars, DVD's and real life, it is this that perhaps may be his greatest asset, the ability to relate to the amateur photographer. Not having been so far removed, it is this understanding that allows him to help his students see through the cloud of misinformation and confusion and marketing spins to find real answers to questions from those who share the same passion for the world, and need to capture and share it, that he does. Leveraging both the business and photographic skills he has developed while managing a private testing laboratory, he recently is the owner of a photography company specializing in the construction industry and a commercial video production company. His corporate clients include Estée Lauder, Sephora and Clinique.
