1 p.m.: “Understanding Light,” with Kevin Ames

Light is the photographer’s paint and the camera is the canvas. Painters controlled their pigments to get exactly the look they imagined; photographers use light the same way. Kevin Ames is a commercial photographer, author and teacher. In this webinar, he shows the two qualities of light and how to recognize them. He shows examples and demonstrates creating them. You’ll learn the three properties of light that each of the two qualities share. You’ll learn about contrast and how to use it for dramatic or romantic photographs. Register now >

2:30 p.m.: “Homemade Lights for Photography & Video,” with Kevin Bradley

Why do we take these lightweight cameras and make them five times heavier? I’ll show you why. There is a method to the madness, and I’ve learned over the last 10 years through battle-tested work how and why these smaller camera designs are the most versatile.

In this session, I’ll show you the techniques, tips and tricks that I’ve refined over the years using smaller cameras. Register now >
