Q. Are there any pre-requisites  to participate in Take control of the light?

A. Nope! This workshop is aimed at anyone looking to wrap their head around lighting. Whether you have years of experience or just bought your camera, you will get a lot from this course. We quickly bring people up to speed on the technical aspects, then move into the fun and exciting world of light - full of variables and fine tuning. If you want to get a really strong understand of lighting in all its forms - this course is for you.

Q. Is it lecture style or hands on?

A. Most definitely Hands on! Most people learn best by seeing then doing. The course is a mix of discussion to introduce concepts, example images to illustrate, live demonstrations to reinforce concepts, and hands on mini-assignments for everyone in the class to practice the techniques, become familiar with the equipment and be crystal clear on the concepts.

Q. What equipment do I need to bring?

A. As long as you have a camera that allows you to shoot in manual mode, and has either a built in flash or a flash hot shoe - you will be fine. If you have more lenses or portable lighting gear - you are welcome to bring it along, but we will be supplying all the equipment used during the workshop.
