It took me a long time in my photography career to “get” lighting.
As in, really get it. Not just understand the technical side of exposure, basic portrait ratios and camera settings.
Something deeper. Something intuitive, eloquent, masterful.
I still don’t really “get” it. Even though I do sorta get it. I do feel a much higher level of confidence with lighting. Took me long enough.
But I seek higher levels of lighting application. That subtle “je-ne-sais-quoi”.
One thing is certain….in portrait photography having control over your lighting and creating images that sell based on your lighting abilities can make all the difference in whether or not your create a steady demand for your photography.
Have you ever looked at a beautiful portrait of a high school senior, or a family, or children and babies, and it just screams quality?
It is instantly something you wish you would have taken. Or, wished you knew how to replicate that “look”?
A masterful portrait starts with masterful lighting. You won’t get away with basic 101 lighting techniques.
Creating high impact portraits means applying high impact lighting strategies.
It’s why I roped in the likes of Fuzzy Duenkel, Brian DeMint, Maggie Habieda, Judy Cormier, Maria Sampao and many, many more.
Including yours truly. Every month I dedicate one of two mastermind meetings to lighting.
Sharing, brainstorming and strategyzing what works in my studio, my photography gigs (all paid of course….not academic fluff)
Join me on my never ending quest.
Yours in photography and success,
