About the Event

PPA Continuing Education Class -  Understanding and controlling light quality is at the core of all of Tony’s presentations. Attendees will learn how to see a unique perspective and not be afraid to push the limits of their experience and talents.    Corbell will discuss all types of lighting and its tools in depth but will concentrate on studio lighting. Lighting applications include additive, subtractive, reflective and transmission.  Each combination of tool and application will be shown and discussed in detail. Tony will discuss the importance of control in the digital capture and how a few seconds of extra time spent at time of capture can save hours in post production.    Tony always spends time discussing Light Quality as well as Light Quantity and how Light Direction plays a significant role in the resulting mood of an image.  Tony has been teaching lighting concepts, theories, and techniques for over twenty-five years and his weeklong workshops on the topic always fill to capacity.  In the past couple of years alone, Tony spoke to over 30,000 photographers throughout the world on the topic of light control and his numerous videos have topped well over one million views.
