This course will introduce the nature of light and how to use it in the creation of an image. Natural and artificial lighting will be explored through portraiture, landscape, architectural and product photography. Students will study the work of professional artists and develop fluency with all types of light and learn studio terminology as they study the behaviour of light and explore lighting ratios; lighting for form, texture, separation; and are trained in the safe use of studio lighting equipment.
