It’s no wonder we spend so much time talking about light. It’s the most important element of photography and the hardest to master.
Starting Wednesday, creativeLIVE will air five, full-day courses dedicated to exploring lighting techniques and methods necessary for capturing jaw-dropping images. The event, dubbed Lighting Toolkit, will be hosted by a different award-winning photographer each day.
Throughout the week, you’ll learn, for free, all about fashion lighting essentials, photojournalism, reverse-engineering setups, flash techniques, and more. Check out the lineup below:
