The hour will be packed full of useful information along the way as Catherine shoots live, explaining her workflow as she goes.
You’ll get to see how she works a session from choosing her lighting setup to building the shot through a series of technical and artistic choices.
The demo will include commentary on artificial lighting, exposure settings, and the histogram, composition, and working with a model. Participants will have time for questions at the end.
