The beauty of available light is its ability to describe your subject from powerful and strong to soft and creamy.

Bobbi shows you how to work with all kinds of light: hard, soft, bounced, window, “garage door”, reflected, diffused, etc. Meeting Location: GTM Research Reserve, Classroom 1 WEDNESDAY 10 TO 11:30 A.M.
