Description Photographers who work mainly on location and outdoors generally learn to treat light as a condition - something to be anticipated, assessed for its suitability, and exploited by various techniques. Moving into a studio, however, creates a fundamental change, not only in technique but also in attitude. The lighting is no longer a given condition, but one that is completely malleable. It is for the photographer to decide what lighting effect is desirable, and then to construct it. This course involves an intensive study into the techniques and applications of artificial and available light as it relates to still photography. Students are required to complete a series of technical and aesthetic photographic assignments.
