Are seeing the light with your photography? 


How an outdoor photographer utilizes and records light in an image can make the difference between an award-winning shot and one headed for the trash! 


With this in-depth study on natural light, learn how to create shape, mood, and meaning in your images by:


  • Identifying the light’s direction
  • Associating the color of light with meaning
  • Predicting the changing quantity and quality of light throughout the day
  • Modify the light with reflectors, diffusers, and filters
  • Recording unique photographs during varying types of weather patterns like rainbows, the Earth's shadow, and fog


By understanding the behavior of natural light, you can take your photographs to the next level without pressing any buttons on your camera!
