You are inevitably going to stumble into scenes of bad lighting sometimes. With the right knowledge, you can transform this harsh, bad lighting into something unique and beautiful, all with a slight adjustment.

At times, you may stumble into harsh shadows meeting bright exposure. With the right knowledge, you can take the bad lighting and turn it into an exciting, fun composition. With the help of your own flash and possibly a secondary, remote flash, you’ll have the power to harness bad lighting and create a beautiful shot, unique from ordinary photography. In this session, you’ll learn how to take advantage of bad lighting and about how moving above your subject can neutralize the effects of harsh lighting.
