Watch Studio Photography Techniques Using Constant Lighting

Are you ready to take your lighting skills to the next level? Join Master Craftsmen Photographer James Schmelzer as he guides you through the transition from strobes to using constant lighting sources. We no longer need to use strobes all of the time, and constant lighting gives us the ability to better read the lighting on the face. James starts off with an introduction into lighting theory, then takes you through the step-by-step process of setting up various types of constant lighting sources, and ways to create different effects with some of the lights that are available today. Constant lighting sources make it fun and easy to experiment, and you’ll leave the class feeling inspired to try some of the techniques in your own photography! watch course
