Low Light Through Genres: A Creative Exercise (Carolina Gonzalez)
Limited Capacity seats available

Join Carolina Gonzalez in a small group setting as she leads an interactive dialogue and creative exercise using window and low light. In this intimate group setting we will discuss how low light can be used and manipulated to convey mood and voice through your imagery. Learn to embrace shadows and how to utilize directional light to create depth. As a photographer who focuses on photographing her children's day to day lives as well as offering lifestyle and documentary sessions to clients, the ability to work creatively indoors is paramount. We will discuss the importance of in-camera settings and their effect on the resulting images (for example: the importance of shooting in RAW and setting custom white balance using Kelvin). There will be a short instructor-led shooting demonstration with models, highlighting how Carolina positions herself and her subject in relation to the light to create a variety of imagery. Carolina will also discuss and demonstrate how she combines freelensing with window light to create soft and emotive portraits. Students should have experience shooting in manual mode. A 50mm or wider prime lens with a wide aperture is recommended. Students who would like to experiment with freelensing should bring a light lens (such as a 50mm f/1.8 or 85mm f/1.8). Lensbaby lenses and optics may also be used and are encouraged for this creative class. Students will have the opportunity to shoot models alongside Carolina as well as split into groups to put into practice the creative techniques discussed. While for demonstration purposes this boutique will have models to photograph, the techniques covered can be applied through any genre of photography, whether your lens is focused on human subjects, pets, florals, still life, food, or macro.

This indoor boutique program will take place in a home-like hotel suite for a lifestyle shooting experience.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn and discuss how to look for different types of available light and when to use each.
2. Observe how combining freelensing with low light can be used to create soft and emotive portraiture.
3. Learn how to create a variety in imagery using natural window light.
