Photography Beyond the Basics

Light & Photography Workshop - Austin, Texas

“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.”
– George Eastman

"Kevin is one of the very best portrait photographers I have encountered in my 40+ years around the Austin photo scene. When you see his work it's obvious that his clients have a ball working with him; he's a great guy and he knows his stuff. Five stars for sure." - Jon Leatherwood

This workshop is highly recommended for all photographers.
Mastering your camera is essential in photography, but mastery of LIGHT is also essential! This course is a comprehensive look at light in its various forms, both natural and artificial and we look at the many ways we photographers can take advantage of, control, and manipulate light to create great photographs!

LIGHT - The Essential Ingredient

Photography is all about capturing images, and the key ingredient is LIGHT. In fact, the word "photography" is derived from the Greek words "photos" (light) and "graphos" (drawing).   This class is devoted to exploring all of the ways you can use and manipulate light to create excellent images.
Improve the Light, 
Improve the Photograph

If you want to improve a photograph, the answer is often to improve the light. I've seen many photographs that are good but fall short of being "great" simply because the lighting could have been better.   There are many ways to improve the light, and we'll cover them all in this intensive class on light!

Over the course of this workshop, we explore many aspects of light and its use in creating beautiful photographs, plus we'll have some fun as well!

Class Format

Come prepared to learn with camera and notebook in hand!   All sessions will be at my photography studio in NW Austin.  

The class is a mix of lecture and live demonstrations and activities in class.  All live demos will be done with Canon cameras, Canon Speedlites, and Photogenic brand equipment (but the same concepts apply regardless of what brand digital camera you may own).  You will be using your own camera for classroom exercises and the photo session with a model.

Session w/Model:

As a student of my Light & Photography Workshop, this also includes a fun session to further your hands-on learning experience.
You will be using your cameras with our studio lighting and one or two models for a fun and exciting photo session. You'll be amazed with the photos you'll be taking in this workshop! Even if you're not really ever planning on doing your own studio lighting, this class will help reinforce the many concepts taught in this course.

Don't worry if you have concerns about how to "pose" the model(s). This class is focused on lighting techniques. The models we use are experienced with posing without requiring much instruction, allowing you to focus on important lighting techniques!
