The Natural Light Photography course provides an in-depth exploration of this fundamental aspect of photography, equipping students with the knowledge and skills to use natural light to create stunning, professional-quality photos.

The course begins by dissecting the nature of light itself. Understanding what light is, and the way it behaves, is crucial to being able to control it effectively within your images. You'll learn about the direction and quality of light, and how these factors can drastically affect the mood and atmosphere of your photos. We will delve into the hard and soft light, the magic of the golden hour, and the dramatic potential of the blue hour.

Next, the course moves onto understanding the different sources of natural light, namely the sun and the sky, and the unique lighting conditions they can produce. You'll learn to navigate the challenges and opportunities of direct sunlight, overcast conditions, and everything in between. The techniques taught here are not limited to any particular type of photography and can be applied whether you're capturing landscapes, portraits, or still life.

Furthermore, practical assignments and critiques provide students with an opportunity to apply what they've learned and receive feedback on their work. This interactive element ensures that by the end of the course, you will not only understand the theory of natural light photography but also feel comfortable and confident applying these techniques in your photography.

One significant portion of the course is dedicated to outdoor photography. Here, we'll cover practical strategies for shooting in various lighting conditions.
