Understanding how light interacts with your subject is as important as understanding how to use your camera.

Course covers lighting techniques including use of light meters, reflectors, fill flash, soft boxes, and the safe operation of strobe equipment.

Students should bring samples of work to first class meeting.

Prerequisite: XPHO2010 Introduction to Photography or equivalent knowledge. Students must have working knowledge of traditional/digital manual camera functions.
