The other day I had the opportunity to be a guest speaker at Del Mar College for Diana Byers class. I HAD A GREAT TIME!! I really love the learning environment… and the fact that people were actively listening to me speak about photography was AWESOME!
Here’s an outline of what I spoke about:
- History of my path to photography (chemical engineering student to chemistry degree to director of operations of small lab in san antonio/dental school applications to volunteer coordinator for hospice patients to photography)
- ColorChecker Passport
- Light meter Sekonic L-308S
- Utilizing Clay Blackmore‘s “pose it, light it, love it” and I changed to “Light it, pose it, shoot it”
- Briefly went into how to read histogram
- Types of light modifiers (reflectors, soft boxes, shoot through umbrellas, umbrellas, etc…)
- How to set height and “feather” of softbox
- Quality of light (soft vs. hard)
- Short lighting
- Broad lighting
- Loop lighting
- Rembrandt lighting
- Clamshell lighting
