This workshop is all about the KISS principle – “Keep It Simply Simple” – and focuses on how you can light and shoot amazing portraits using only a single light source (plus a reflector, where required).
Using a single light source can help sculpt face, form and figure, as well as create drama when leveraged the right way. In this mini-workshop, you’ll learn how to work the height, angle, placement and size of your single light in order to create a variety of different portrait styles — from flattering portraits to evocative and moody ones.
Come and join Seng Mah and Digidirect for an afternoon that’s all about the Power of One — One Light, that is!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Your interchangeable lens camera (DSLR or mirrorless).
