In Module One we will get to grips with the equipment, light sources and terminology used throughout the course. We will look at the different types of lights that can be utilised and the effects that they can create. Learn about the art of light drawing and what type of equipment you’ll encounter during the course.

Set your camera up and discover some of the settings you will need during the course. We make it easy to understand and offer useful visual aids to ensure the ideas are clear for everyone. We will even look at starting our first light painting in our fun mini challenge!

Learn how to capture the best angles, positions and times to make those light trails pop! Discover different special effects that you can add into your light trails as well as learning how to make the most of different weather conditions by going abstract.

In module 4 you will get the best ideas on where to find and capture creative light trails with a beautiful sense of speed and movement whether you’re at the fairground or just around the house. We’ve even packed in time to discuss bokeh, double exposure, surreal photography and how to create ghostly portraits!

This is when you will get to grips with creating your own light paintings using lots of different light sources. We’ve made this course budget friendly so there’s no expensive equipment needed to try out any of our techniques. Find out how laser pens, fairy lights and glow sticks, amongst others, create striking light paintings with the right camera settings.

Unleash your creative potential with module 6 as we discuss the best opportunities to shoot abstract photographs based on light tricks. We’ll help you understand the basic principles of creating an abstract image and show you how easy it is to try at home with our macro water droplets mini challenge.

Make every shot a banger with the fireworks module. Learn the dangers and spot the opportunities to make any firework display a truly great photographic event. You’ll find out the best ways to compose your shot as well as the best camera settings for photographing bonfires, candles, fire dancers and sparklers.

Add more tricks to your knowledge by adding a bit of flash to your shots. Get the best out of your camera flash with a helpful lesson about guide numbers, flash sync and the quality of light. We will also look at creating depth and shape in a photograph by changing the position of an off-camera flash.

The ideas just keep on growing with module 9 as we will show you how to make professional looking images using powder, glass, kaleidoscopes, gobos and light stencils! This module is packed with creative projects to try at home with family and friends, you will be amazed by how little preparation you need to make amazing photographs.

Now it’s time to get outside and embrace the night sky as we show you how to capture phenomenal images of star trails, the milky way, and lightning storms. Uncover your camera’s dark side as we learn about the highs and lows when taking pictures of the vibrant city nightlife – we will even give away some top secrets along the way.

Wire wool? Yes, but with a few odd props and some expert guidance, we are going to make that wire wool look like an exhilarating ball of fierce fire. You will capture images others can only dream of. We’ve made helpful guides on how to get your camera set up, picking the right location, finding interesting angles, adding in people, reflections and SO much more!

As the course goes on, the tricks get better. It’s only right that in module 12 we add in a little more DIY, so you can build your own light painting from scratch. You don’t need to be handy with a hammer as we’ve put together simple step-by-step guides with images to help you create amazing light domes, orbs, tracings and surreal digital artwork painted into your photographs.

Why not add a little more drama and imagination to your portraits by adding a touch of magic? We’ve put together ideas on how to create a dream like scene using a bit of dressing up and clever lighting effects. If you’ve ever wanted to be the next Harry Potter or Tinkerbell then this is perfect for you (and the kids!).

Go into the unknown and play with invisible light as module 14 breaks down the startling, rare form of UV (ultra violet) photography – it’s easy to try at home with a few little props. Make your friends glow with envy as we go all luminous with our creative approach to UV body painting.

Where would any great photography course be without a bit of style and drama? We’ve crammed our fashion tutorials with ideas about photographing with glitter, shooting in the rain and capturing theatrical poses. We’ve even taken inspiration from famous fashion photographers to present light trail clothing – yes, we have got a whole section on making clothes out of light! You really have to see it to believe it!

Since you’ve mastered the basic flash let’s make it even more fun with a creative flash module. Learn how to modify your light source in addition to changing the quality, direction and colour with brilliant tips that can be applied to nearly any area of photography. Colour your lights with gels and find out how to make a statement with a ring flash light. If that’s not enough we’ve also found time to put together a brilliant lesson on using high-speed flash to make some high-end commercial food photography fit for any fancy restaurant.

We’ll give the camera a rest for a moment and turn our attention to the computer screen where in our last two modules, we’ll spend time editing our amazing images. Whether you just want to learn how to add more contrast to your shots or make some amazing light trail clothing all in Photoshop, we’ve got you covered. We’ll also show you how to patch over any problematic light trails, create ghosting effects and add realistic light flares.

Become the master of all light tricks with our final module in advanced photo editing. With over 3 hours of video tutorials, you will learn to create and improve reflections in your pictures, add lighting effects, create psychedelic multi exposures using the Harris Effect and even go abstract by making fractal distortions. Introduce some chilling atmosphere to your fantasy portraits by adding mist and fog in a few easy steps too!

What Our Light Tricks Course Students Say

We asked 5 respected photographers who have completed the iPhotography Light Tricks Course to provide us with their honest feedback. Here are their reviews of the course:

“Overall the light tricks course for me was perfect. I’m very new to photography but light tricks and night photography are what I seem to be enjoying the most at the moment. As I’ve only just finished the course I don’t have many light trick photos but I have added the ones that I have done whilst completing the course that I am happiest with. I’d highly recommend both courses I have completed so far (I’ve just started portrait). “

Jon Andrew

iPhotography Student

“I really enjoyed it! I loved the lighting section, it had great information in it, and was in-depth. I love the editing modules! I like how it really starts with the basics and then goes to more advanced steps, that will be very helpful to so many people. I think you really covered everything. It was awesome!”

Jessica Nightingale

Christmas Winner 2017 & POTY Nominee 2016, 2017, 2018

“The Light Tricks course was fun, creative and informative. I really learned a lot from the broad range of new techniques that it showed you how to achieve. It is a great course for both beginners and those with a little more knowledge under their belt. The modules are well composed and easy to follow.

With each area of study, you learn something different, innovative and, at times, complex. I think for me, the most important thing I learned from doing this course was to slow down, stop and think about what settings I needed to use to achieve the desired effect in my photograph. This was not only useful for dealing with the light trick techniques, but I have found I am now more conscious of how I use the exposure settings in my photography across the board.

I would highly recommend this course. Give it a go – you never know what you will learn!”

Christina Cox

iPhotography Student

“I found this a thoroughly enjoyable but at times quite challenging course – the range of techniques covered is very extensive indeed. Although I haven’t had the time or opportunity to try out too many of the ideas just yet, the beauty of iPhotography Courses is that you have lifetime access to the modules and they can be revisited when you need to refresh your mind on a particular topic. The Light Tricks Course has really sparked my imagination and has certainly got my creative wheels turning. I would recommend this course to students wanting to learn some fun and different techniques which will broaden any photography portfolio. The editing modules are really helpful and now I cannot wait to get started on the iPhotoshop course!”
