Class Description

Now that you have learned the basics of One Light Portraiture, you can further enhance your creativity while shooting high quality, beautiful portraits lit with only a single light, using a variety of different light sources.

This exciting class is designed for the intermediate photographer, and takes off where our popular “One Light – One Night Portraiture” class left off. Students will continue their path of learning how to better see light, while taking their creativity to new heights.

This class will allow you to become efficient with your lighting, and will greatly expand your knowledge base of lighting portraits.


Available Class Dates: To be announced

This class is intended for the novice photographer with a DSLR camera or modern compact camera that has manual exposure controls. You will learn how to control light in your camera and how to move beyond just being a point & shooter. This class will have you working OUT of the auto modes. This class will set the foundation to build your photographic knowledge and is the prerequisite for most of our other classes.

There are hands-on elements in this class so be sure to bring along your cameras!
