Class Introduction

I'm really excited to be back on Creative Live. I was just here a month ago and it's just such a beautiful environment to be in. So I'm really excited to share with you this class. So in photography composition, framing, lighting they're all very important elements and they're all going to edit differently depending on how they were photographed. So it's really important to understand how the shooting and the editing, even though they're very different parts of the process, how they interact with one another so that we can really get the best out of every photo. As wedding photographers we're often facing really tight timelines with very difficult lighting situations, where things can change really, really quickly on us. In editing we really wanna make sure that we bring out the best out of every part of the image and that we enhance the elements that are already there. In this class we're really going to look at lighting and look at editing and how we combine the two to make the most ...

out of every picture. I'm also going to break down our formula for our creative portraits and how we make the most out of every new situation even when we're on a really tight schedule. Afterwards we're gonna bring the images into Lightroom and look at how we edit them in Lightroom and Photoshop as well.

Class Description

Good lighting makes for an easier edit, and solid editing knowledge allows the photographer to play more with light. That said, there are plenty of things you can do about substandard lighting in the post-production process that can save your photos. In this course, wedding photographer Daniel Kudish will conduct a live in-studio photo shoot with a real couple to show you how to create great lighting during your shoot so your editing process is easier. He’ll then do a full editing walkthrough in Lightroom® to demonstrate how to correct lighting problems and play with your lighting to bring your images to life.

So love the way Daniel explains the thought processes for the images. Calm mental very very helpful. The D+D pair are an amazing photographic team from the feelings, experience, teaching and the results of their vision. So want to take a class with them in person.

Amazing, very short compared to other classes that I have, but it's really relevant, he goes straight to the point and there's a lot of great info, and that's what makes this class so good. I really like his style​ of teaching, very simple and clear, and that's what we need.


Excellent course! Daniel explains in details how to take the pictures and how to retouch them later. I like his easy and clear approach and the use of a lot of examples. I recommend this course to anyone.
