Sculpting the human face with light”

The art of seeing the world is the essence of the photographic experience. Being able to see the people you invite in front of your camera and then apply learned lighting techniques to accomplish your vision is the difference between a snapshot and photograph.

  • Sculpting with Light - A photographer uses light the way a sculptor uses a chisel.
  • “Seeing” Bone Structure - Learning how to emphasize and de-emphasize facial contour.
  • Identifying Your Subject - Controlling foreground, background, and subject plane of focus
  • Shaping Facial Features - finessing areas of opposition in highlight & shadow
  • Learning the Angles of Lighting - Side, Front, Top, and Edge lighting
  • Learning Types of Light and when to use them - Flat, Soft, Hard & Indirect light.
  • Lighting design – Additive vs Subtractive Lighting
