Overview of the course


This course structure aims to provide a comprehensive and practical understanding of portrait lighting, balancing technical knowledge, creative expression, and real-world application.

Find and buy new lighting kit easily

I have linked to as much of the kit mentioned in the videos and notes as possible. I've used Amazon links because these are the most likely to survive even if the product is discontinued.

Learning to use light can be frustrating at times and when something isn't working you might just find that you are only a few degrees of subject rotation from success. The slightest of tweaks to a light might just be all that is needed to make a picture come alive.
