Continuing Education Course



Lighting Techniques


Understanding how light interacts with your subject is as important as understanding how to use your camera. In this hands-on course students are introduced to the technical and aesthetic concerns of both natural (outdoor) and studio (strobe) lighting. Course covers lighting techniques including use of light meters, reflectors, fill flash, soft boxes, and the safe operation of strobe equipment. Students photograph a variety of subjects (people and products) to understand lighting problems and solutions inherent in each. Course is held in the Otis lighting studio.

Prerequisite: XPHO2010 Introduction to Photography or equivalent knowledge. Students must have working knowledge of traditional/digital manual camera functions.

First class materials: Digital cameras required for all class instruction. Film cameras may be used with the approval of Instructor.
