Harnessing the Power of Natural Light: A Portraiture Seminar on Cape Cod
Monday August 5 – Friday August 9, 2013
Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, Truro MA
Level: Advanced Beginnger – Professional
Lighting is the core of photography, and Summer on Cape Cod is flooded with a magical quality of light that attracts artists from around the world. Put your camera on ‘Manual,’ get out into the sunlight, and come learn from award-winning portrait photographer Jesse Freidin. This seminar will show you the simplicity and sheer power of natural lighting, how to harness and manipulate natural light for a variety of portraiture situations, and how to effectively light any situation without the need for flash or consistent bulb lighting. We’ll also learn to control light through proper usage of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, apply analog film techniques to digital work flow, and discuss style and creative approach. At the end of this seminar, your photographs will sing with even tones and exceptionally easy professional lighting techniques
