We spend a lot of time discussing light and various qualities of light – to get a better understanding of shadows!

Ambient Light: This is the light we will be using the most. Here we thoroughly cover what is is and how to work with it! Once we know how to control the light, we can control the shadows that define our shapes and textures.

The Main/Key Light: Before you can learn to master the shadows, you need to understand the light that is making them! Each light source whether it is ambient light or studio light (or both) creates it’s own set of shadows. And it’s own set of problems and opportunities!

Shadows: The shape, position and depth of the shadows – and your mastery of them – is what will turn your photos from dull lifeless “pictures” into something you will be proud to not only put on the wall…but you will be proud to sign them too!

The Fill Light: Here is the key to controlling the depth of your shadows and bringing emotion into your art.

Fixing Problem Areas With (Or Without) Shadows: Every face and every scene has flaws that you can “fix” in your camera. Every subject you shoot wants and deserves to look like a million bucks! It’s your job as a photographer to make that happen.

Glare: Glare in glasses can easily ruin a photo. Plus it’s incredibly difficult to “fix” in Photoshop. Fixing it in camera is really easy once you know how.

You are closer than you think to creating truly amazing photographs that will be the envy of your friends and family!

Filters – for the most part physical “on camera” filters have dropped by the wayside due to the digital revolution.

We still use filters, but now – with many of them – it is after the fact (in Photoshop) rather than in front of the lens. But, there ARE a few filters we still need on camera. the effects simply can’t be easily done (or done at all) in Photoshop…

The UV Filter – This one can literally save you thousands of dollars.

The Polarizing Filter – this one should be in your camera bag ALL THE TIME! The results you will get can take your photography to completely new levels and it is difficult if not impossible to duplicate the results in Photoshop.
