The essence of making images is capturing light, and knowing how to control lighting.

Beginning with fundamental theories and concepts of light, participants will learn in a practical hands-on environment how to maximize results for natural /available light, utilize techniques for controlled lighting (including mechanisms for sculpting light), and become skilled at 1-point and 4-point lighting set-ups using low-cost portable light kits and DIY Lighting Setups.
