CREATIVE LIGHTING PHILOSOPHY

Creative Lighting is a philosophy of image making that sees light as the primary force in imagery. It’s about learning to see and think about light as a photographer or cinematographer does, and the craft of image making as a painter would. It is an approach to image making that favors the artist’s vision over technical knowledge.

NATURAL LIGHT

DEVELOPING YOUR STORY


Learn how light affects the quality of a place and how it's related to emotions and moods. By understanding the power behind the natural light, you will learn to create more dynamic images. In this course, Nikos will teach you how to position and direct your lights to create images that are happy and positive or dark and mysterious.

“A room is not a room without
natural light.“

- Louis Kahn
