About This Class

This class will teach you the pricipals of Studio Lighting for photography. We will go over such things as: Light placement and distance, the seven patterns of light, lighting to correct facial features, and much more. You will end my class by creating a sequence of images (light by light) that helps you to learn exactly what each light is doing and where it should go.
