It’s easy to get caught up in the plethora of lighting options available to a photographer this day and age, but one source remains true—the sun. Imagine if you will, you’re en route to an amazing location and your batteries die, your reflector tears, or, you forgot that ONE cord you needed for off-camera flash—things happen. So let’s take a step back and look at how to plan for the worst and achieve the best.
Bring your camera and join Canon’s Jon Lorentz and learn tips and tricks for shooting with the sun and working with your subject. Featuring stunning locations and models from the Bliss Model Agency, this is one event you won’t want to miss!
