LATITUDE is excited to present our first in-person lighting workshop since March of 2020! This class will cover a variety of lighting scenarios and camera techniques that will introduce participants to studio photography that honors different skin tones. The modules will be split in two sessions with a combination of lecture, demonstration and practice. Participants will learn the function and value of the gray/color card, natural and artificial lighting basics, DIY modifiers and tools, intro to set building and prop design, posing and framing techniques to elevate your portraiture and digital workflow. Participants will receive a prompt to be reviewed and discussed in the second session. Equipment and camera settings will be covered along with some additional tips and tricks to better capture your subject. The information and tactics taught in this class can be utilized on any camera whether that be an iphone, film camera or digital camera.
