About This Class

Flash photography is essential to learning how your camera operates. In this week's Micro Lessons, we take a quick look at why the distance & positioning of your camera's flash matters. Distance is important! It effects the harshness of your light, the amount of power you need to properly expose it, what settings your camera has to be in. We start with a lesson of one of my shoots I did, followed by a second lesson about how to edit those same photos.  In the class you'll learn: The importance of the distance your light is from your subject The importance of positioning your light in the correct position How to retouch studio-environment photographs & have a consistent visual style These Micro Classes are a consistent stream of content being produced solely for SkillShare, and are meant to teach high level concepts in a short amount of time!

My interests in photography and film started when I was very young, there was something in it that it gave me this absolute fascination with it. I find it a visual language-- an opportunity to gain insight on the little blue globe we inhabit.

I live in New York City.
