Photography is magical. You can use your camera to capture a fleeting moment and a passage of time in a single photograph.
In this webinar, sponsored by Sekonic, Joe Brady will show you how to produce powerful and captivating images that combine flowing motion and amazing detail in outdoor scenic shots that include water. Then he will bring his camera into town to record locations over minutes to demonstrate how the flow of action creates results that are both telling and eerie.
Joe will be using the Sekonic L-758DR light meter to show you how easy it is to get the perfect exposure information to make your flowing landscape – even when the exposure runs into seconds and even minutes to get the look you want.
Key tools for long exposures include neutral density filters and sturdy tripods. Joe will show how to use them and introduce you to some of his favorite support systems from both Benro and Induro to ensure that the static parts of the scene remain tack sharp.
The images created are fun and exciting, so join us for this informative and inspiring session.
In this live video presentation, we’re going to focus on portrait photography using ambient light – to be more exact, we’re going to use a window as our main light. A large window can be a great source of light, but to create a great portrait, you often need to shape and add some fill light to create more depth and beauty.
To create great images you need to know how to shape the light on your subject. Knowing when to add additional light and seeing when to subtract light are aspects of lighting control that will add shape, dimension and beauty in your photography.
To accomplish this, we’re going to use a handheld light meter to provide us the information we need. Handheld Light meters are not just about exposure – they put you in control of shaping the light in your photograph because they can tell you the exact amount of light falling on different areas of your subject.
If you’re tired of bracketing multiple exposures in an attempt to get one great shot, or if you’re ready to take the quality of your portrait photography to the next level, join us for this live class and see the benefits that a handheld light meter can bring to your images. With the information it can provide, you can shape the light to your needs and end the frustrations of exposure insecurity.
For many photographers from novice to professional, the concept of mixing flash and daylight in portrait photography is a subject that causes their blood to run cold! When forced to use flash in such conditions, the results are often barely acceptable snapshots with bright faces and no shape.
Join host Joe Brady in this Live Video Presentation sponsored by Sekonic as we take away the mystery of blending flash with ambient light. The combination of off-camera flash and a light meter to measure ambient and flash contributions will give you complete control to craft portraits your clients will love.
Many of us are passionate about landscape photography, but many have difficulty capturing an image that successfully conveys the beauty and feeling of a place. We all take these images because there is something about what we are seeing that inspires us and causes an emotional response.
What makes for a great landscape photograph and what distinguishes it from a snapshot? What are the composition issues that can make or break a shot? Why are you taking the picture in the first place?
Light, geography, the time of day, and the capabilities of your camera will all contribute to a great landscape photograph. Knowing the limitations and learning your tools will help end the frustration of missing a great shot or ending up with a poorly exposed image beyond rescue. One of the tools we’ll use is a Sekonic L-758DR handheld light meter. This meter offers a combination of incident and spot-metering capabilities to give us all the information we need to get the best exposure possible. It can also provide the exact exposure information needed for the best results when compositing high dynamic range (HDR) images.
Join us as we explore many of the aspects that can make for a great landscape photograph. Learn to create an image that tells a story, invites you to linger and explore, and engages all of your senses as you are drawn into the place—that’s what makes for a great landscape photograph.
For landscape photographers, capturing the best image data possible means better higher final image quality, less editing and the best possible print. Join host Joe Brady for this free webinar on using a handheld light meter out in the field and on location to ensure that this happens.
Protecting the highlights in an image is paramount and Joe will show how to make sure this happens. This webinar is sponsored by Sekonic and discusses topics including:
• Evaluating the Scene
• Ambient Metering
• Protecting the Highlights
• Shooting "to the Right"
• Metering for HDR – when does it become necessary?
• Compensating for filters
