No matter how much we love shooting in natural light, the sad part is we can’t control it. If you rely on natural light to create a specific look in your photographs, there’s always a possibility you’ll be let down. Luckily, we have artificial light to the rescue! This new video course & eBook from the Lighting Asylum is designed to help you gain stylistic control of your photos using flash in challenging situations. Found here: Understanding Flash
You can rely on flash photography to create a series of images with a consistent look while controlling the intensity levels. This enables you to choose the exposure settings that work best for your desired composition.
In the video course, Corbin explains larger concepts about lighting:
- What makes light soft?
- What is a stop of light?
- What does flash do for your photo?
- Why to even try and master it?
She also covers the five pillars of flash photography.
The video starts by showing you how you can shoot photos like your favorite photographer with the right knowledge of your own equipment. The real skill lies in knowing how to use your own equipment to the fullest. Once you master that, you can concentrate on the next important bit: Composition, Color and Lighting.
