New Class: Master High Key and Low Key Lighting

Master High Key and Low Key Lighting with Lindsay Adler
Join Lindsay Adler in studio for a class all about the extremes of lighting! From low key to high key setups, Lindsay starts you at the beginning where your shoot’s purpose determines the type of lighting you will use, and all the choices you make from that point onward.

In the first half of the class Lindsay focuses on low key setups, with a look at the characteristics of low key photographs, to the modifiers you can use, to examples of her favorite setups. In the second half of the class Lindsay builds on what you’ve learned about low key lighting to morph into a variety of high key setups.

All throughout the class Lindsay shares her perspectives on why and when she uses a particular set up, the gear she uses, the positions of the lights, and so much more. By the end of the class you’ll have a new repertoire of low key and high key lighting setups you can add to your studio offerings.

In Case You Missed It
Direct sunlight for portraits is typically harsh and unflattering, full of dark shadows and bright highlights. Fashion photographer Lindsay Adler takes on the midday sun at Central Park, where she teaches you how to take control of the light. You’ll review tips to get out of the direct sunlight as well as ways to use diffusers and reflectors (including natural reflectors) to conquer the harsh light and still get beautiful portraits. This class is perfect for anyone needing tips on how to conquer harsh sunlight for portraits.

  1. How people can shoot vertically without a vertical grip is beyond me! I must be missing certain bones in my wrist or something! Either way, her work is gorgeous : )
