Chapter 3 Introduction
we are moving on now to chapter three, which is awesome because endeavor to wood covered all about the basics of flash, which is great. Now we understand a little bit of gear. Now, I want you guys to understand the basics of lighting itself because once we know the basics of flash on the basis of light and we can get on to actually creating awesome images So Chapter three is all about understanding. Like we're going to start this off by basically discussing the kind of primary key light patterns were to go into secondary lighting patterns were also going to show you kind of differences between non diffused versus diffused key. Lighting patterns were to cover subject positioning in relation to where the light is coming from. We're also gonna discuss light qualities and how to change between soft versus hard and diffused versus speculum types of light. We're gonna move and talk about the inverse square law, and I know this laws like so we don't want to learn this, but it's really not tha...
t difficult. We're gonna talk about how it works and then show you how it works in practice. So not only will you understand the math? Um, it you'll actually understand the real world applications and principles, which is totally more important in the map. We're gonna get into after that corrective white balance versus creative white balance and talk a little more Mother details in between. So let's go ahead and start with Chapter three.
Lighting 101 follows in Photography 101's footsteps. Photography 101 takes students up through Manual Mode mastery and provides a foundation in natural light techniques and modifications. Lighting 101 picks up by teaching all about flash and light modification. But, just like Photography 101, we want Lighting 101 to be the most accessible lighting course available. So we teach you everything about flash lighting, light modification, ambient to flash balance, lighting patterns, off-camera lighting and even multi-point off-camera light setups. But, what makes Lighting 101 truly special is that we do all of this with nothing but your on-camera hot shoe flash. Every image shown and created in this course was created with a DSLR and just a single on-camera hot shoe speed light.
