003 P2

With Spring weather finally upon us, it's time to get outdoors and take advantage of your natural surroundings. The Photoflex Lighting School website features a wide variety of outdoor lighting lessons to help you create the best images possible. From portraits and bridal to pets and products, there's no excuse not to get outside and shoot!

Our brand new lesson from Light Leader Steve Kurtz features the new OctoDome White Portable Speedlight Kit and his methods for shooting portraits and head shots outside of a studio. Follow along with Steve as he creates dynamic portraits of his subject using just 2 portable flashes.

Feel like getting wet? If you live in a warm area and have a swimming pool at your disposal, why not try underwater fashion photography? In this lesson from Light Leader Kristina Sherk, we see what it takes to create beautiful underwater fashion images.

If you are a pet owner, you can practice pet portraiture with the advice of award-winning pet photographer Amiee Stubbs. In this comprehensive lesson, Amiee shows us how to use reflection and diffusion to create stunning pet portraits.

Don't be afraid of shooting in the middle of the day with the help of these two lighting lessons from Light Leader Laura Tillinghast. These lessons cover several techniques for diffusing harsh sunlight and using it to create soft and flattering portraits. Part One deals with the basics while Part Two takes the lesson further with more advanced techniques.

When adding still-life images to your portfolio, take advantage of available natural light and consider shooting on-location. Shooting in a photogenic location like the beach can help to add context and interest to your images. In this lesson, the Photoflex LiteRoom provides the perfect diffusion for product photos.
