The morning session is a slide show demonstration and discussion on how to shoot for layered images to balance lighting colors and contrast, professional lighting, and techniques for getting straight lines in small spaces.

In the afternoon, we are on location at a newly renovated home on the North Shore with fantastic views, offering an opportunity to discuss dealing with problematic lighting situations using specialty lenses and lighting equipment. Barry and Aura will walk you through a professional shooting production in one room, demonstrating compositional challenges, lens choices, camera placement, overcoming lighting challenges, and multiple exposures for blending in post-production.
