The Camera can be a simple or very complex device, but is the centerpiece of all production. Understanding its basics will advance creativity and keep the fun alive during your imaging.
Light is required to capture any image. By understanding, controlling and creating light, we can make repeatable and predicable art for the camera to record.
Shadow is a by-product of light. With shadow we can shape and control how light is emitted and create contours and dimension to augment the image.
