Janet Dwyer will also discuss how to control quality and direction of light, exposure and color balance. She will address participants’ questions, and present ideas for lighting sets that one can construct. This Bootcamp will be more theory-based than hands-on.

In addition to shooting for many renowned artists and numerous galleries, her clients include the Royal BC Museum and the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. Since 1978, she has taught photography workshops and instructed at colleges and universities across Canada. Janet is the contributing author on this subject in Robin Hopper's book Stayin Alive, a survival guide for artists.
