Overview

Lighting is one of the most important creative components of any image. Joe Lavine and Brad Bartholomew, commercial photographers and instructors, offer a unique approach to learning about studio lighting.

  • Setting up and using equipment and making choices based on the needs of your subject
  • Building a studio on a tight budget and how to expand as your business and expertise grows
