The Study of Light is a brand-new online course that covers everything from lighting outdoors to lighting indoors! The course is split up into eight weeks, although it's set up so that you can go at your own pace. You won't need an expensive flash or lighting set-up - in fact, I will show you how to use what you already have, as well as how to build your own indoor home studio (lights and all) for less than $50. Each week is interactive, and you'll also have a little homework too!
What makes this an interactive course? Each week will give you the opportunity to ask whatever questions you have (and have them answered!), and to post what you're working on so that everyone can see your progress!
**This is an online course, so everything is work at your own pace, which means there are no start dates and no deadlines! You have the freedom to begin whenever you like, and to go through this course as it fits with your schedule. Everyone can be on different weeks at different times, but I'll still be there along the whole way to answer questions. I hope that clears things up a little! :) **
To take this course, you will need a basic knowledge of your camera, as well as knowing how to control your camera's white balance and exposure. You will also need the ability to run a few errands, or have a friend who can shop for you!
Week One - This is our shopping week as well as a time for gathering inspiration! You'll receive a shopping list full of everything you'll need for the entire course.
Week Two - An introduction to learning about kelvins, different light temperatures and white balance, and a quick fix for your night shots.
Week Three - Learning about the different tools we'll use for lighting, an easy DIY for making your own scrim!
Week Four - Intro to outdoor lighting. You'll learn some basic lighting terms as well as how to identify different types of outdoor light, so we can duplicate it indoors!
Week Five - TOTAL outdoor lighting. This week is very involved as you'll be learning about everything there is to know about photographing outdoors, finding natural reflectors, and about finding solutions to bad outdoor lighting.
Week Six - I'll be going over how to use daylight when you are photographing indoors, and how to make the best out of the space you have.
Week Seven - TOTAL indoor lighting using one, two, and three lights, and learning to use your reflector and scrim!
Week Eight - Coverage for extra lighting tips and special lighting cases, such as photographing glass and metal.
*Also included is a Resources section for my personal favorite sources for photography equipment, software, extra tutorials, and online sources for purchasing course supplies. Be aware that students outside of the USA may have trouble finding the lighting supplies*
****Please note that this is a short course geared towards amateur and beginner photographers, bloggers or shop owners who might want more eye-catching photography, and hobbyists who just wanna learn something new! This is not intended for professional photographers.
COST: $60 USD
The Study of Light e-course is a little bit more than other e-courses typically run, I believe for a good reason. I've compiled and added on to my two years of photography and lighting education, as well as 7 years of experience, into a smaller course with a practical, more accessible approach to lighting, so that you don't have to go through two years of photography school, spending thousands on tuition and professional lighting equipment (like I did)! :) If you need great photography for your blog, shop, or even if you're another photographer hoping to up your game, this course is well worth it. I truly believe that excellent photography quality is what makes people take your image seriously! So, is your image worth it? YUP.
