Lighting is such a strong key to a good photograph. It can make or break your image. Knowing where the light is coming from, what exactly that light is doing to your subject, and how to use it to convey your message is crucial. If you find yourself struggling with lighting you may want to consider CMmentor Lisa Harrison‘s beginner workshop Lighting 101: Intro to Natural Light. Lisa is here today to share a little about her incredible workshop and to showcase some alumni images from the previous courses.

I wanted to showcase some images from class alumni from the first 2 runs of Lighting 101: Intro to Natural Light. This course will help photographers who are comfortable working with their cameras in manual mode learn how to see and understand natural light and then put it to use to create beautiful images with depth and dimension. You can read the class reviews and sign up here. The next run starts Monday August 6th. Registration is currently open to lifetime members and will open to everyone on this Thursday July 19th. The slideshow below may take a few moments to load.

As CM’s Photoshop expert, it’s only fitting that Lisa is the instructor for the Lighting 101: Intro to Natural Light, Processing 101: Photoshop Fundamentals for Photographers, and Processing 201: Intermediate Photoshop for Photographers workshops. Speaking of her photography journey, Lisa says, “when my son was born I became hooked on photography. I wanted to capture everything I could. When he napped, I read about photography and taught myself photoshop. My husband bought me my first DSLR in 2004 and the rest is history.” With her Canon 5d mark III and various lenses, mostly primes, she enjoys lifestyle photography with bright clean processing and natural skin tones but equally loves black and whites. Living in Vermont with her husband and two children, Lisa loves skiing and boating. Family, friends, Starbucks, Zumba, her camera and computer are among her list of must haves.
