Wednesdays, 6:00 - 9:00 pm (2 weeks) May 16 & 23
This course is an introduction to the use of flash photography and techniques used in painting with light. The purpose of the course is to introduce students to use of flash photography in exposure and in controlling lighting ratios, as well as the use of alternative light sources that can be used to aid in exposure. The course will highlight two radically different lighting techniques and expand the student’s understanding of lighting well beyond the norm. At the end of the course students will be familiar with:
*The uses of studio flash and portable flash units as a primary light source or as a supplement to natural light.
*The relationship between shutter speed and flash lighting.
*How to control lighting ratios using flash.
*How to control flash exposure and coverage using light modifiers.
*How to control flash exposure and coverage using light sources.
*How to use alternative light sources to supplement available light or as a primary light source.
*The relationship between the shutter speed, ISO, and the light source in making an exposure.
