About the event

Understanding light is one of the key element in portrait photography. A minor modification in light and shadows can turn a simple photo to a moody dramatic storytelling image.

I will show how to expose the backgrounds and mix with off camera flash to get enough light on your model to produce high-quality dramatic portraits.
