The Process: Building Blocks to Better Lighting
Join JC for The Process to learn from his lifetime of mistakes and leave you in a place where all the intimidation of lighting is melted away leaving you with the building blocks needed to allow exploration in your creative endeavors with lighting and photography rather than frustrations. This step-by-step foundation will help you create a strong skeleton to flesh out your lighting ideas with a process that is easy to follow for any photographer that understands how to change the shutter and aperture on their camera. Lots of behind the scenes examples and before and after’s make it easy to see WHY and HOW you would want to make various decisions rather than focusing on giving you something to copy. Group size is limited to 15-20 participants
Thanks to our partners at Westcott, they are generously giving every student that signs up a $20 gift card to achieve your lighting goals!
