    Everyone

    Join Padma Inguva, Adventures in Photography, and Unique Photo for a livestream on creative flower photography with a light box!

    Flowers are popular subjects for macro photographers, especially when the photographer is new and just learning about color and shape, light and shadow. However, you can still be limited by factors you can't control, such as weather. Just try and get a tack-sharp focus on a windy day or fix lighting issues on a dreary, rainy day. It can also be hard to get the right angle on a flower whose stem is still attached to its roots.

    To overcome this, Padma began bringing flowers from her garden indoors. With the use of a light box, she could create arrangements that helped convert her pretty garden snapshots to beautiful fine art. Additional topics include gear, how to choose the right flowers and subjects, different compositions and arrangements, post-processing, and more.

  • UUOnline (Free): Dramatic Portrait Lighting Part 2 with Bobbi Lane

    Class Code: UUUO40

    Skill Level: 
    Everyone

    Dramatic lighting is emotionally powerful and can be bold, theatrical and evocative. The lights define the subject and craft a strong impression. It's important to take control of the lights and use them effectively to establish the mood. Dramatic lighting is often dark, using split or edge lighting to produce a sense of mystery that leaves a subtle or profound impact on the viewer. This two-part presentation features lectures and behind-the-scenes videos by Bobbi Lane to help you understand how to use the quality, direction, and depth of light to construct a persuasive and commanding image.

    PART 2: Three+ Lights & Dragging the Shutter
    Sometimes it necessary to use more lights to make a compelling impression. The traditional three light set up is: main light, background light and either a hair or slash light. From there the possibilities are endless! For one person there could be two edge lights, a background light, and a fill light from the front. For an athletic or body shot, there could be multiple lights on the subject and multiple lights on the background. Some of the examples are the Hollywood Glamour Style of George Hurrell, who would use 6-7 lights for one person. Learning how to drag the shutter or balancing strobe and ambient light, adds a formidable new technique to your lighting skill.

    Dramatic lighting is emotionally powerful and can be bold, theatrical and evocative. The lights define the subject and craft a strong impression. It's important to take control of the lights and use them effectively to establish the mood. Dramatic lighting is often dark, using split or edge lighting to produce a sense of mystery that leaves a subtle or profound impact on the viewer. This two-part presentation features lectures and behind-the-scenes videos by Bobbi Lane to help you understand how to use the quality, direction, and depth of light to construct a persuasive and commanding image.

    PART 1: One & Two Light Setups
    The key to any successful portrait is to match the lighting with the concept of the photo. The first step is learning the lighting patterns: Split, Rembrandt, Loop and Butterfly using only one light. The second light can be used for hair light, background light, or edge lighting, giving more depth and dimension to the image.
