"I created this course to help photographers understand lighting and actually teach the workflow of a shoot without having to be a mathematician or wizard. The end result is for you to be able to easily create a strong emotion with a beautiful photo."

Joel Grimes

What You'll Learn

I'll show you how to crack the code to lighting. 

I believe that once you learn the basics of how light works, you then can replicate any lighting technique on the planet.  

I hate mathematical equations. But I have tackled a monster; I have plotted out the Inverse Square Law using the Zone System so that you can see it from a visual perspective so that you can now apply it to your everyday shooting without having your brain explode!

Another topic I go into great depth in is the use of High-Speed Sync. Learn to create ultra-shallow depth of field images using strobes outdoor in full sunlight overpowering the sun.
