15:00-15:45: Capturing Colour - Seminar and Demonstration from Jakob Gronkjaer - Interfit.
In its most basic form, photography is the art of balancing light at dark. Using too much light can burn or wash out images, not using enough can leave them dull or flat. Throw in colour temperature, white balance, diffusers, gels, shutter speeds and aperture and things can get very complicated very quickly. Learn the simple methods of how to control colour, temperature, light and dark with this informative demonstration from the lighting experts at Interfit. This talk will give you the confidence to fine tune control of your camera, lights and location no matter the situation you find yourself shooting in.
