Event Details

So you think taking a photograph outside with the sun’s natural light is easy? Have all of your past shots turned up without silhouettes, subjects without squinting eyes and photographs without misplaced shadows? There’s much to learn about outdoor and natural light before breaking into indoor and studio lighting. Believe it or not, some photographs require additional equipment – even for outdoor shots - to get the shot right. Getting great shots of people in natural light outdoors happens when you know how to use the camera, lens, natural and (often) additional light effectively. We will be go through lens selection; understanding light (color, direction, background effects); focus and bokeh; and get real experience working with natural and additional light. In this Workshop, you will learn about different types of natural light, how to photograph your subjects using natural lighting, when silhouettes are good vs. bad, how to manipulate shadows and much, much more. During the Skills Lab, you will practice taking photographs in sunlight and in shady areas.


Required Knowledge:


DSLR owners: Knowledge of manual settings (F-stop, Shutter Speed, ISO, White Balance).


Point and Shoot owners: Knowledge of how to use program settings - ISO, White Balance.


Recommended (Optional) Equipment: External Flash and/or Slave Flash device and tripod.
