            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.

                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. Learn More at: www.Sekonic.com

If you’ve never been taught how to pose, this free Webinar sponsored by Sekonic is a must-see event. Knowing how to pose — even when your informal shots are “not posed” — will let you capture your subjects at their most flattering best.

                      Portraits taken on location provide the opportunity for photographers to tell a more complete story about their subject. The environment helps explain the relationship your client has with this place, environment, or activity. This can be something as simple as being outdoors in a park or just in their yard. It might include hiking, horseback riding, motorcycles, cars, or any number of interests and activities people feel passionate about. Join host Joe Brady for this free Webinar presented by Sekonic. Shooting on location can present an entire laundry list of obstacles to getting a great photograph, but some planning and a thought-out approach can help to make it much easier. Spend some time with Joe as he explores the process and the equipment to help you create beautiful environmental portraits your clients will love.
