Photographic Lighting Techniques

Current Instructor: Scott Stallings

Cost: $275 Members, $325 Non Members

Photography means to write with light. And while understanding how to manipulate and use light can be quite intimidating, it’s critical for anyone hoping to master the photographic arts.  This four-week class is designed to make you more comfortable with various lighting techniques; that way, you’ll have a stronger grasp of how to use it to benefit every photo you make. Ultimately, in this hands-on, workshop-style class, students will learn the fundamental principles of how photographic lighting behaves, and how to use those principles in real-world scenarios.

You can contact Scott Stallings directly at Biggs Camera if you have any questions about gear specifications.
