We receive a lot of questions and requests for articles on lighting and using flash. We've covered a few areas here on the website but it's such a large topic that we've decided to build an entire course on it.
This is a bit of a teaser so I'll warn you ahead of time I can't give you all the details yet, but we're working on the material and content right now but could really use your help. The course will cover all aspects of lighting on location including:
- what equipment is needed and what can you get by with
- metering the light
- lighting people to flatter them
- posing people to flatter them
- lighting ratios and light patterns
- flash on-camera
- flash off-camera
- using reflectors
- balancing natural light and flash
- how to use fill-flash
- when to overpower the natural light
- high speed sync, and more
Based on your feedback we will have a better idea of which topics to cover in more detail, which to skim over as review, and possibly even what to add that we've missed altogether.
