Lighting Fundamentals | Cormac Hanrahan
Light is the language of photography. In this online course, join professional photographer, Cormac Hanrahan, as he guides you through the fundamentals of lighting.
Utilising an extensive array of behind the scenes photos in combination with results straight out of camera, this course explores common natural light scenarios found in and around any home and teaches participants how to overcome difficult real-world lighting situations.
We’ll explore identifying different types of light, use basic tools to manipulate it, and learn how to utilise the spaces of your home to understand the fundamental principles of light and how to use it to create compelling photos.
While the examples provided focus on portraiture, the lessons in this course apply to all aspects of photography and the skills and knowledge gained can be put into practice immediately and will remain relevant for the rest of your photographing life.

"Cormac was fantastic, he really knew the subject and showed many examples of what he was explaining (being online). He explained light in easy to understand terms, and followed up with how to work with it". - Previous Nikon School student
