Conánn took us through the basics of photography today, allowing us to understand the balance between IOS, Aperture and Shutter Speed. It was really useful for me as I struggle with the technical understanding behind photography- and how visualizing the balance between all three elements.

We then watched a video by Peter Hurley, discussing how to ‘Illuminate the Face.” Between the many “guys” and “dudes” he demonstrated the position of light sources, the strength of them and then extra elements that can be used. Things like the ‘inexpensive’ umbrellas that could be used. He also stressed the importance in the difference of lighting for men and women. Men can take a lot harsher shadows due to stronger jaw lines and facial structures, whereas women need softer elements
