This two and a half-hour program will provide by lecture and demonstration the techniques of quantifying beauty which will help determine exactly where to place the (brighter) main light. Then, we will talk about how measure and place the fill light to create the lighting ratio to flatter your subject using a flash meter. We will demonstrate a variety of types and styles of lighting including the use of background lights and hair lights. We will also have a discussion about the proper lens focal length consideration for portraiture and why you should choose a particular style of lens. Live model is provided. This is not just a powerpoint presentation, but a chance for you to bring your camera and shoot photographs. This is part of the First Saturday Lecture series co-hosted by Camera Exchange in Waterford and Midwest Photography Workshops.
