Getting the right light can be difficult enough in a studio, even if you’re working with still subjects. Needless to say, action shooting outside or in fashion settings can test the limits of even the most seasoned photographer. If you’re looking to improve your skills in this area, then consider the photography lighting workshops at the Photoshop World Conference and Expo. These pre-conference courses allow you to jumpstart your PSW experience and get in-depth training on the subjects that matter most to you.
Some of the things that our instructors may go over with respect to action shooting include:
- Outdoor lighting – Much of the time, sports are played outside, and getting the right balance of light and dark can be difficult with the changing light. We’ll show you how to get the best shot in the blazing sun, after dark, and anytime in between, as well as how to adjust on the fly to compensate for other variables like clouds and a setting or rising sun.
- Stadium lighting – The bright lights of a sports facility can throw off an otherwise great photo. Avoid the glare and learn how to use these lights to your advantage rather than try to avoid or fight them.
- Flash – Learn how to time your shots so that you get the right image day or night, whether you’re using flash as fill light or shooting in pitch blackness.
- Image processing – After the action’s over, Photoshop training helps you take your images to the next level. Learn to enhance the natural beauty of a shot, or give it an otherworldly look. Whatever you want to achieve, our expert instructors can teach you how.
