    Lighting is by far the most important ingredient in creating an image, it is the key to photography. Light defines the subject. Light will show or remove texture. It has the power to direct a viewer, evoke an emotion and tell a story. Light is the basis for life and the heart of a photograph. Knowing how to and use light to set the tone for your image is an art, an art that takes years to master and only moments to appreciate. The best part of photography, at least in my opinion is being able to manipulate reality while still keeping it real. An artist can create any fantasy he or she desires with the brush, but photographers must do that with light and shadow alone. 

    On the other hand, light is also a science. We are ruled by physics. The two must be used together. Photography is about the “Art and Science of Lighting”. In this program, both the basic laws of light along with creative use of light will be applied in studio and location settings. We will utilize daylight, flash, strobe and ambient conditions working with no more than two light sources. You will learn valuable techniques to make your images different than your competitors. Gain the knowledge and understanding of what light, any light, will do in a given situation and then have the skills to manipulate it to your style, LIVE! Light quantity, light quality and light direction all play critical roles in your image making and in this full day class you are guaranteed to leave with the knowledge to make you a better more efficient photographer.

    Cris and Deanna Duncan operate C j Duncan Photography in Lubbock, Texas.  Living in a small town, they have the honor of photographing everything from weddings to families and two Presidents along with corporate clients such as Bayer Crop Science and Frito Lay.  Over their 10+ year career, they have been published in numerous national magazines and acquired numerous industry accolades.  However, what means the most is their daughter, family and the life they lead working together in the art form they love.  Cris and Deanna are both contributors to PPA EDU.  Cris is the founder of Find Your Focus Photographic Education and are Texas School Instructors.

    Photography is an art that molds 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 mind’s eye.

    One size does not fit all when it come to portrait lighting. Each client is unique and has story to tell. In this class you will learn how to use light as a powerful narrative tool to create impactful and unique images for your clients every time. 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. You learn lighting principles. In this class you will learn:

    LEARN LIGHTING
    Lighting anywhere, in any situation with any light

    LEARN LIGHTING PRINCIPLES
    Why does it do that? How can it work for me?

    LEARN TO MAKE A LIVING
    Light, compose and design with the end in mind to ensure profitable sessions.

    Don’t forget your camera. This hands-on class filled with “Ah Ha” moments, is your time to experiment and learn so when in you own sessions you can make your images work every time without getting flustered.

    To sum up this class, you will be able to combine the technical skills of light along with design and compositional elements to confidently deliver your very best for clients. Every time.
