Using single and multiple lights. When to use light modifiers. Lighting ratios to control the subject and the background.
Tips and tricks for posing people.

This class will provide you with the tools and knowledge you need to create a variety of interesting well executed portraits.
After this class you will be prepared to make great images of family, friends and strangers and approach portraiture with more confidence and skill.
