    Introduction (03:23)
    Scott introduces the structure of the class and the concepts that will be covered.

    Flashes to Consider (05:37)
    This lesson is for anyone who is looking to purchase a flash.

    Other Gear to Consider (12:27)
    Once you have the flash you need a secure way to get it off the camera and a way to soften the light.

    Packing Your Kit (02:12)
    A simple compact bag can keep you organized and ready to go at any time.

    Basic Camera Settings (05:51)
    It helps to have a good starting point for your camera settings before you head out. You can adjust as needed on location.

    First Location: In the Shade (17:35)
    When choosing your location you need to consider the available light as well as the background. From there you can test your settings and hone in on the right flash power and position.

    First Location: Indoors (03:46)
    A change in location will bring a change in settings and flash positioning.

    Running and Gunning (06:00)
    When you work with an assistant it can bring in a lot of flexibility to change things on the fly.

    Flash Outdoors in Bright Light (03:41)
    There are a few ways you can use the flash to your advantage when shooting out in the sunlight.

    Flash with Window Light (03:41)
    Window light is great for portraits, but you may not always have enough with just the window alone. Adding in a flash gives you even more flexibility.

    Second Location: Football Field (09:28)
    With a new location and new subject comes new camera settings and new challenges.

    Reviewing the Shots (06:05)
    Before getting into the retouching Scott takes a quick walk through of some of the shots from the two locations that he will be retouching later.

    Retouch: Amanda by the Stairs (11:18)
    Photo retouching is as much about the background as it is about the subject itself. Scott starts in Lightroom and then seamlessly moves to Photoshop to finish the job.

    Retouching the subject's eyes is one of the most important parts of the job, followed closely by the teeth and the hair.

    While the basic workflow is the same there are techniques you would apply to a male subject that you wouldn't do when retouching a female portrait.
