The photographer I connected with was Skip Schmitt. Skip came into our class twice, once was to tell us about his life as a professional commercial photographer and teach us about lighting. Skip told us about how he used lighting different types of lighting, some examples include butterfly and split lighting just to name a few. He also taught us about how he sets up lighting even in daylight to get the perfect commercial shot. The other time Skip came in he taught us about different photoshop techniques. He taught me how to use the lasso tool to cut out subjects with a nice clean edge, and how to blend things into each other.
