Lighting without Lights: Naturalistic Lighting for Beginners
This two-session technical workshop focuses on methods of naturalistic lighting. Designed for beginners, we will discuss making use of natural light as well as interior available light. The history of naturalistic lighting in paintings, cinema and photography will be explored and used for inspiration.
Over one weekend, the class will delve into various topics, including exposing for naturalistic lighting, direction and texture of light, how to pose people to make use of natural light, how to use things like reflectors and negative fill, how to use backlight effectively, how to manage color temperature, and practical solutions to in-the-field lighting challenges.
Part of the class will be working with models. This course will include lectures, critiques, and assignments to foster a greater understanding of how to employ naturalistic lighting effects for photographic image-making.
This course will meet at a beautiful new studio located in Cypress Hill area of Los Angeles, Fourteen Studios. The entire 5,000 sq. ft. studio complete with cyc wall will be reserved for the class.
