Lighting Fundamentals

Learn how to properly light your work for the purposes of photo documentation. By studying a variety of lighting scenarios, students learn to make specific choices with regard to existing or ambient light conditions, as well as light augmented by other sources of illumination. Learn the rudiments of metering, mixing light sources, using an electronic flash within existing lighting conditions, and continuous light. Fantastical lighting schemes with strobe systems and hot lights will also be explored. Class time will be spent on demonstrations, individual projects, digital image manipulation, printing, critiques, and lectures. Students must provide their own camera with APS-C sensor and manual functions; no point-and-shoot cameras. Prerequisite(s): Digital Photography 1 and Digital Design: Adobe Photoshop, or equivalent experience.
