Window light is photography’s oldest studio light source and it is still used today by many photographers as an alternative to strobe. Window light can produce gorgeous results for portraits as well as for a range of still life settings from close-ups to small product photography. The key is to understand the various forms of window light and how to modify and control this wonderful and free light source.
During the morning of day one, Joseph Meehan will cover the basic qualities of window light with illustrations and equipment demonstrations in the Centre’s light studio. This includes information about accessories such as reflectors, diffusion panels, scrims, gobos and background choices. Also covered are methods for measuring exposure, controlling contrast and white balance. Participants will then use this equipment to take a series of pictures with various subjects during the afternoon of day one and the morning of day two. The class will conclude with an afternoon critique of these sessions. A tripod is highly recommended along with a moderate telephoto focal lengths and a macro lens for those wanting to do close-up work.
