Description

Presented by: NYC DIgital Photography Workshops

Hosted by: Adorama


The magic of photography starts with light. Let your creativity soar as you grow beyond shooting with available light and learn to control, manage and manipulate your light sources. Whether you shoot with a simple speedlight or the most expensive studio strobe, you need tools to help shape the light. There are many varied and different modifiers photographers use to shape light and produce beautiful images, but nothing is more basic - and affordable - than the simple umbrella. Often overlooked and under-utilized because of its simplicity, the umbrella is nonetheless one of the most valued modifiers in the studio.

This seminar will cover the basics of umbrellas, explaining why they are often a photographer’s best friend and why they are the perfect modifier. Understanding how to effectively use umbrellas is the first skill to learn before moving on to other modifiers.


This seminar covers the basics and there is a lot to cover; given the time and questions, we will discuss a number of topics:


  • Different umbrellas for different uses

  • Gold, silver, white, zebra, translucent—types of umbrellas

  • Umbrellas – size matters.

  • Controlling light with distance and size

  • Hard light edge, soft light wrap

  • Common one light set ups for great images

  • Multiple umbrella set ups

  • Umbrellas with strobes and speedlight

  • Umbrellas—thinking outside the box
