Shaping light direction and intensity sets the mood, creates dimension and sculpts the subject in every portrait. Both in the studio and out on location, knowing how to control and measure these light patterns is the single most important aspect of a beautiful portrait.

Join host Joe Brady as he shows step-by-step how to set up, control and measure portrait lighting. The free webinar, presented by PocketWizard, explores the gear and techniques to help make you master the light. Starting with light ratios, Joe will show portrait lighting sets from studio portraits to bringing light outdoors as the main light source. If you want to create a signature style that elevates your photography to the next level, the mastery of off-camera lighting should be your next goal ­ and PocketWizard makes that happen.

Join us as we continue the journey towards a better understanding of light so that you can craft beautiful portraits for your clients.
