This excerpted lesson from my Landscape and Travel course teaches the essentials behind working with light. Direction, quality, color and natural vs artificial are all covered in this 25 minute video that emphasizes using the light that's available in any scene. Learning how to use and manipulate light has been essential to my development as a photographer and I hope this lesson helps you to better tell your own visual stories.
This free video lesson is just one part of a larger course called Landscape & Travel.
In Landscape & Travel I cover everything from photography's fundamentals to the most advanced aspects of photography. From composition's ‘rule-of-thirds’ and the ‘exposure triangle’ all the way to lighting portraits, creating panoramic mergers, traveling with gear, and creating time-lapse video. From your own backyard to the other side of the world, learn to better capture and create your own unique visual stories.
