WEEK ONE: Reading the Light Indoors – Study how the source of light and its proximity to your subject influence your final image.
WEEK TWO: Owning the Light Outdoors – Banish your preconceived notions about outdoor light and discover that you actually can shoot any time, not just during “golden hour”! You’ll learn how to evaluate your surroundings and find a good location ten steps out your front door, and you’ll learn to adapt and adjust your image for the lighting conditions on the fly.
WEEK THREE: Controlling the Light Anywhere – Low light conditions can make powerful images and bright light conditions can be tamed. Learn how to direct, control, and even stop the light by using curtains, flashlights, headlights, and dark backgrounds. You’ll be surprised at how much there is to experiment with!
All participation and interaction for this class will take place in a private online forum. (Registered students will receive instructions on how to access the forum a few days before class begins.)
On the first Monday of class, Kellie will share Lesson 1 in the forum. She will also be available during the week to answer questions and facilitate discussions in the forum as you read and work through your lessons.
While most of our DEFINE courses follow a weekly-lesson format, this class is unique – new assignments will be sent out every few days, for a total of nine shorter lessons and assignments. Kellie will offer feedback on every assignment.
The beauty of this class and every other class at DEFINE is that you can read, practice, and participate throughout the week whenever it is convenient for you- from any timezone, anywhere you have Internet access, at any time of day. Most students spend 3-5 hours per week “in class.”
