Managing Location Lighting Rebroadcast

Laguna Beach Fashion Photography Workshop with Charles LUCIMA


Although the live event has passed, you can purchase the rebroadcast of this webinar below!

Location lighting can be tricky. While you can move lights around in the studio, you have to manage the lighting present at any given location. If you don't manage location lighting, you could wind up with hot spots, over/under-exposure, raccoon eyes, glare/flare, focus issues and other typical problems.

Basically you can really screw up a shot with poor location lighting skills.

This workshop answers the following questions:

– How do you identify light sources and their impact on your shot?
– How do you leverage strong front versus back-lighting?
– How you find good light sources on location?
– When should you use a fill card? A bounce card?
– When should you bring a strobe on location? When should you use ambient lighting on location?
– How do you properly expose for a location shot? With or without a lightmeter?
– How does location lighting affect camera settings, composition and crop?

This will be a presentation-style workshop with lots of image examples, discussion, and Q/A. I will walk you through the challenges I've faced at my location shoots, whether indoors or outdoors. My goal is to increase your comfort level for managing location lighting anywhere, anytime and still get great shots. Managing location lighting is critical for shooting outdoors especially when you don't have a studio yet still need to create powerful imagery for your clients.
