Setup and Shoot: Location Lighting for Challenging Situations
with Joe McNally
Joe McNally takes his amazing lighting techniques to the kinds of locations that clients ask for in sports, editorial, or commercial photography: outside on an unseasonably chilly Florida day, inside a cramped gym, and down in a mucky swamp. There, he creates some stunning athletic portraits that show you how to manipulate light and capture what can be asked of you in real-life working situations. BUY COURSE
