Skill Level:
@ Unique Photo PHILLY, PA

Without light there is no image. However, when light is applied everything depends on the approach and technique. The choices made can either render images flat and lifeless, or filled with intrigue, drama, and eye-catching beauty.

In this workshop, esteemed image-makers and teachers Juan Ortiz and Wrangel Lubin from Redd Pen Media will walk you through the basics and importance of assessing lighting ratios, how to use light as a part of storytelling, what makes a scene truly cinematic, and much more.
