  • NJCS: Techniques for Dragging the Shutter with Bobbi Lane (Fujifilm)

    Class Code: UUU8242

    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    Balancing strobe and ambient light is tricky but the results can be amazing. We use the flash to illuminate the subject, and slow the shutter speed (hence the term “dragging”) to pull in the background ambient light.

    Once you get the basic concept of how to set your flash and what camera settings to use, it’s easy and fun to experiment. We'll first learn how to get the proper balance of exposure between the two light sources-flash and ambient- then we play by shaking or spinning the camera, zooming the lens, panning and more. The flash will light the subject and freeze any motion, and then moving the camera will blur the background in a variety of ways.

    Join Bobbi Lane for this fun, creative class and shoot!

  • NJCS: High Key and Low Key Lighting with Bobbi Lane (Fujifilm)

    Class Code: UUU8241

    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    This seminar with Bobbi Lane presents essential lighting techniques and tools for the photographer to create the impact and range of mood for the portrait.

    The classic High Key is a pure white background with the subject well illuminated for a bright, happy and lively feeling. Low Key traditionally is a dark or black background, with more side lighting and shadows for a dramatic and evocative portrait. Light is the essence of a successful portrait, so understanding the three key elements; direction, quality and depth, is crucial. Controlling these elements is essential in terms of retaining detail in both shadows and highlights without sacrificing your choices for establishing mood.

    We will demonstrate many creative methods of lighting and why to choose certain modifiers. The technical set up for high-key and low-key lighting will be fully explained and demonstrated!
