Understanding light is key to great photography. Here, Karl tells you the four types of light that you need to know, which is best for your photography and how best you can work with different sources of light to create the perfect results.
He also touches on the “Magic hour” and why this is the best time to photograph if you want to create more interesting photographs. With two photography demonstrations in this class — one seascape and one portrait — you will learn how to use different light sources and their effects.
In the second half of the class you’ll also learn about reflectors and how you can use them as a powerful tool to enhance your portraits.
In this photography class we cover the following:
- Understanding light
- The best light to photograph in
- How to photograph in manual mode
- How to photograph using natural light
- Using reflectors for portrait photography
