Iconic Portrait Lighting
Celebrity portrait photographer Brian Smith will break down the lighting he's used to create iconic portraits of Hollywood’s A-list and Fortune’s 600. He’ll explain not only the ‘how' - but also the ‘why’ to his simple problem-solving approach to portrait lighting. Learn how to control the quality of light and how the choice between hard light and soft light allows you to control the mood. You’ll learn which lighting modifiers he uses to control and shape light and shadow to sculpt light in the studio and how to overcome harsh daylight by blending strobe with ambient light on location. Learn how to take cues from reality making the most of great light when you find it and how to create it when you don’t. You’ll learn how to work quickly under pressure, on both small and large productions to make everyone you photograph look and feel like a star.
