As countless famous photographers have shown us, it is light that makes a photo. In this class, we'll discuss and use the many different kinds of light: available light with reflectors, hot-shoe flashes off-camera, "hot-lights," and studio-quality strobes with modifiers. We will talk about and understand the color of light, why light matters, and how to control it. We'll look at lots of photographs (yours, mine, and published professionals') to see how the lighting was made and how we might change the light to improve the photograph. We will do hands-on photography with lighting in class and in the field. You will get the chance to push your camera and flash in new ways. Prerequisite: Nuts and Bolts (LLART 193), Digital Photography I (LLART 115), or take our quiz: go to www.lifelong.utah.edu or call 801-587-5433. Class is limited to 10.
