With the current Coronavirus outbreak shutting down productions and causing financial hardship for staff and freelancers in our industry, Shane Hurlbut ASC, has made his Illumination Experience Workshop available for free. You don’t even need to download the course, you can watch it directly online.

The Illumination Experience Workshop usually costs $499 USD and it has over 8 hours of instructional videos, so it is well worth watching. Unfortunately, you can’t download the course, so you will only be able to watch it when you have an internet connection.

A similar version of the course is also available free from MZed during the same period, who are also donating 20% of overall sales to those impacted by the coronavirus at the moment.

The Illumination Workshop has videos that cover the following:

  • 5 things to look for when lighting any face:
  • Drop shadow
  • The Wedge
  • Eye reflection
  • Nose shadow
  • Eye shadow
  • When to use certain types of diffusion
  • Where to place your diffusion
  • Secrets to organic looking bounce light
  • How to use color checkers to ensure rich accurate skin tones
  • How to know what side to light a subject from
  • Shane’s proprietary technique for testing how to light faces
  • The power of shaping light
