In this course, Rich Harrington and Abba Shapiro give beginning photographers a brisk look at using strobe lights in a studio setting—lessons that easily translate to the field and locations, inside and out. Learn why shooting with strobes and continuous lighting makes such a big impact on your photographs, and how to buy a good, affordable starter kit. Rich and Abba also show how to set your gear up, trigger your lights, and make modifications with accessories like reflectors, umbrellas, and soft boxes. Finally, learn how to make the most of what you have in a series of lighting challenges.
You know getting into the world of strobes and lights can be very confusing, but it all falls back to the same basic rules of the golden triangle, Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO, how fast your camera is. Now, one thing I love about strobes is I have really bright light. And because I have access to really bright light, I can actually turn my f stop up. Which actually closes down the lens. So instead of shooting at like f/2.8 and having a really shallow depth of field where perhaps, the nose is in focus but the eye isn't, I can notch it up.
I can shoot at say f/8, or f/16, even f/22. And have this great depth of field where everything is sharp, and a lot of times that's important, especially when shooting a large group of people or just when I want to make sure that everything in my frame is in focus, and I can do that with strobes.
