No matter what part of the market is being served by your studio, getting the images right in the camera saves countless hours on the computer later trying to fix bad exposures and color casts.

Using simplified methods, Claude will show you how to master any light in any situation using all modern lighting tools. You will learn how to create several different looks in salable portraits using window light, umbrellas, boxes, diffusers and reflectors. With a slide show that features all images, pullbacks, and live demonstrations, all your questions will be answered.
