D’Ann McCormick Boal: Painting with Light

Join D’Ann Boal of Smitten & Swoon Photography to learn how easy it can be to layer multiple lights into a single scene to create painterly portraits.  Learn the ins and outs of key light, fill light, backlight, and how to create different qualities of light all with the Profoto A2.  D’Ann will show you how various Clic modifiers can be implemented to achieve the exact lighting results you’ve dreamed up.  From umbrellas to snoots, gels to grids and more, see how different modifiers impact the quality and quantity of light in your scene.  Watch as D’Ann builds a scene, sharing the lighting techniques one layer at a time.  See firsthand how easy a multiple light setup can be, and how implementing multiple lights allows you to begin painting with light – every element of your straight out of camera shot can be just as you want it to be. You will walk away with a deeper understanding of different types of light, how to create that light, and how modifiers can be utilized for impact.
