The Power of Light
with Tony Corbell
July 17 - July 23, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Light is the single most important ingredient in creating photographs with impact. Exciting applications of light make it possible to transform the mundane into the magnificent. This workshop is designed for photographers seeking a broad understanding of artificial lighting techniques in order to achieve greater control over their images.

Light can be elusive. Often it’s too harsh or too soft. It may be non-directional or too directional; too warm or too cool; it can even be too dark or too bright. Tony presents a solid technical foundation for portrait lighting that enables participants to surmount these common lighting challenges. His hands-on teaching style offers a thorough understanding of light quality, light-shaping tools, and metering in any working situation. Through demonstrations, daily assignments, and critiques, we explore studio lighting in depth, covering such areas as light quality, light quantity, light direction, and working with models and props. Going out on location, we learn to apply these techniques by controlling the natural environment and lighting.

Tony guides participants with a high-energy, fun-filled approach to the technical side of photography while keeping a close watch on the creative side as well. By the end of the week, participants are able to create well-lit, stand-out images with confidence and predictability.
