Portraits and Light

Making Beautiful Portraits at Home or on Location (97minutes total runtime)

  Enroll in Course

This course is ideal for any photographer to be able to find, see, create or modify existing light to be flattering for facial portraits. Focused on available lighting in and around a home or yard, this will help you take better portraits, and make better choices with lighting. It is 9 segments, with the first one focused on the foundation of finding light and gear/equipment, and the last one a summary of lessons learned and tools utilized throughout the series. The other seven segments cover window light, midday light, sunset light, shade, reflected and ugly light too! My hope is it will change the way you see light and photograph the loved ones (or clients) forever!
