"Embrace the Light"
Find your voice. Write your story. Define your style.
It’s been said that skilled photographers are artists who light with a paintbrush. They are writers who narrate their own visual story. They define their personal style. They are in control of the way their images look and feel. They do this by knowing how to see the light, to manipulate it, and use it to their advantage. Lighting is a crucial part of photography. Sculpting with it is an art form.
Join Kristy Steeves, a Master Photographer, as she shares her unique approach on embracing the light to create shape, form, shadows, texture, and mood. The placement of light, shaping of light, and ratios can all work in your favor. Kristy will demonstrate certain techniques, such as broad, short, split, profile, Rembrandt, and cross lighting, along with proper posing, to get beautifully sculpted images.
Light is your greatest tool. Come and create. Find your voice. Write your story. Define your style. Paint your masterpiece. Learning how to light is one of the greatest discoveries you can make as a photographer.
