Fundamentals of Photography: Shooting in Sunlight and Shadow with E.K. Waller
Thursday, October 25, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (PDT)
Los Angeles, CA
Turn harsh lighting situations into dramatic imagery.
This 3 hour hands-on photo class is part 3 of a series of fundamental classes designed to teach the building blocks of photography. This class will help you understand how to shoot in dramatic lighting situations. Successful photographers understand how to “see the light” and they understand how to expose for tricky situations that would fool your cameras light meter.
The contrast between highlight, midtone and shadow determine if your photo is going to be flat and boring or crisp and dramatic. Learn how to position your subject for direct or indirect sun, shade, back lighting, side lighting, shadows or silhouettes. Most importantly, we will discuss how to meter for an area of high contrast, a backlit subject, or a subject with dark shadows. There will be a live shooting demo where students will have the opportunity to shoot as well as a presentation of dramatically lit images.
