Lighting Skills for Photography - Studio 110 in Mathews - 10am - 2 Hours
Great photography requires great light; it defines form and texture, sets mood and can make or break the image. This 2 hour practical hands-on course is being taught by professional photographer Scott Kinser. It will focus on portrait photography in a studio environment, using camera mounted flashes and studio flash. You'll learn to understand the direction, quality and colour of light on a subject and surrounds, and how this affects a portrait. We値l approach all the key topics slowly and thoroughly so that you have time to build a terrific understanding of how lighting affects your photos. Most of what you learn can then be applied outside the studio environment in your everyday photography.

We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Charlotte. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What痴 involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You値l then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You値l receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We池e a social bunch!
