Lighting for Sales

Cris & Deana Duncan
Course Number: 14
Level: Intermediate

Photography is an art that melds light and subject together to create an unforgettable image. By combining your artistic vision with the mastery of the technical science of photography, you can create the images that you see in your dreams.

It is not a recipe–its knowing what each ingredient does so you can create your own signature style. How do you do this? You learn lighting. Strobes, off-camera, studio, location, natural light, mixed light and more–they each can help you propel your business.

Join Cris and Deanna Duncan for a week long interactive, hands-on experience.  Through fun, challenging exercises, you will stretch, laugh, be refreshed and discover new tools to add to your photographic skill set. In a relaxed environment, you will explore the psychology behind the sales process. What do people want? How can you light the images in a way that speaks to the client? Lighting for Sales is the melding of the technical, psychological and artistic parts of photography to allow you to create something like no one else.

Don’t forget your camera. This is your time to experiment, refine and play so when in sessions you can confidently craft images without getting flustered.

Whether you have been photographing three years or 30, after this class, you will be able to combine technical skills with design and compositional elements to confidently deliver your very best for clients. Every time.
