The Language of Light: Exploring Photography with Mark Wallace

https://www.adorama.com

This is part one of a four-part series on basic lighting principles. In this episode you’ll learn the basic language of light; hard light, soft light, and the direction of light. You’ll learn how the source of the light effects the quality of light, and how to use modifiers to change the quality of light. Mark Wallace uses a simple animation to illustrate the basic fundamentals of light.

Venice 15 Minute Photo Challenge: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

https://www.adorama.com

A city break is the perfect opportunity to test your photography skills and in this video Gavin Hoey takes on one of his famous "15 minute photo challenges" at the Rialto Bridge in the beautiful city of Venice, Italy.

Being a hugely popular tourist spot there's no shortage of photo opportunities but as well as the "must have" shots, Gavin goes in search of the less obvious images. To make it more challenging Gavin has two uses. Rule 1, he can only use one lens and rule 2, he only has 15 minutes to take all the photos.
