Capture dramatic light photography no matter where you are or when you're shooting! Join renowned photo-essayist David H. Wells and gain an understanding of natural light and harness it for impressive photographs. During class, you'll learn to spot the best light on location and turn any time into the best time of day to take photos. Want to draw the eye in with vivid composition? David will teach you how to control shadows so you can capture dramatic photos. You'll also discover which exposure is best for your light and how to get great results from light that's far from perfect. Plus, David will build on your flash knowledge and give you Lightroom® finishing techniques so you can compensate when nature just won't cooperate.
Meet David Wells, a professional photographer who's here to help you get the most from natural light. David starts by explaining how to evaluate light quality. Using his friend Barry the Bust, he'll show you how different times of day and seasons can change what your light will look like.
Simple math can help you produce the best possible pictures. David introduces his "Wells Points," a basic calculation that will help you identify the perfect time to shoot. He also shows how to use light to create dramatic contrasts and stunning silhouettes.
Shadows offer a chance to create visual interest and play with the narrative of a photo. David shows how placing yourself in different spots can create dramatically different results. Also, he demonstrates how experimentation can result in some of the better shots of your life.
