About The Class

Control the beauty of natural light to create amazing images

For some photographers, capturing images with natural light is an anxiety producing process. Unlike studio lighting, nature doesn’t always cooperate, and you never know when you’ll be met with too many clouds, too much sun, or something in between. Renowned street photographer Dave Krugman will teach you how to deal with a variety of natural lighting situations so you can get optimal results no matter the weather.

In this class, you’ll learn how to:

  • Get the most out of whatever light you have.
  • Enhance available light with various techniques.
  • Deal with reflections, shadows, and hard and soft light.

If you’re more comfortable with artificial studio lighting, then this course is a great way to gain the confidence you need to create beautiful, impactful images with natural light.

    Stay clear, this is a waste of time. Any newbie photographer can do better than him when it comes to natural light portraits. If you are into natural light portraits look for something else.

    He had good images to show but there was minimal actual instruction or insight. The segment where he was illustrating live shooting was him basically taking images and talking rather than instructing. I assume it was his first class.
