Understanding Light in Photography

with Vincent S.

Vincent S.

Lighting is one of the most important elements in photography. However, most beginners in photography often think that when they take photographs, they are taking the people, mountain or buildings. The truth is, you are actually recording the light that is reflected off these objects. Therefore, without good light, even the most compelling subject will not make for an interesting photograph.

This workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to learn how to create an effective image with the most appropriate illumination.
Some topics that will be covered:

• Introduction to Lighting
• Natural vs artificial Lighting
• Indoor vs Outdoor Lighting
• Color Temperature
• Direction, Intensity and Color Balance of Light
• Flash Photography
• Working with ambient light
• Balancing Flash and ambient Light exposures
• Bounce Flash
• Avoiding Direct Flash
• Controlling shadows
This workshop is conducted in a small group environment

Vincent Sung Professional Photographer / Travel & Lifestyle photo-journalist / Creative Director / Contents Producer Hello, I grew up and lived in Belgium where I studied Visual Communications & Journalism before apprenticing with some renowned photographers in Europe (Paris and Brussels). In 1992, I moved to Paris to take on assignments for a variety of Parisian modeling agencies, building models’ portfolios and worked for a number of fashion magazines (Marie Claire bis and Marie Claire) In 1996, my 'Korean roots' called me back and I decided to move back to Seoul, South Korea. There, I worked for the Korean editions of prominent international fashion magazines such as ELLE, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Noblesse, Haute, frequently traveling on assignments that took me elsewhere in Asia, Europe and USA (San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles). Early 2010, my globetrotter mindset and lifestyle, with a special affection for S.E. Asian countries, made me decide to relocate to Bangkok, Thailand. From here, I have contributed to publications about travel and lifestyle featured in: DestinAsian, Lifestyle+Travel, Asean Tripper, Eloquence, Elle Indonesia, Conde Nast Traveller UK, World Travel magazine, NAA magazine, magazine Latitudes, Wanderlust. At present, I share my time between SEOUL and BANGKOK (I just finished the first Asian edition of Cool Cities: Cool Bangkok).
