A 7-week, online class for intermediate photographers who want to learn about light and using it to your advantage! Through written lessons, videos and a private forum, we will examine the use of light and instruct how to shoot in various natural-light settings including back lighting, shooting in full direct sunlight and low-light and learning how to capture dramatic silhouettes!
