The Workshop

An intensive one day workshop aimed at those who would like to learn and develop their knowledge of studio lighting. Mastering Studio Lighting, the Essentials will get you up and running on the basics of studio lighting. The format of the course is a hands-on workshop with classroom sessions in the morning and practical photo shoots in the afternoon. As well as covering the technical aspects of studio photography we also explore how to interact with your subject(s) to get the best images.

We start with studio flash, looking at shutter sync speeds, the best method of triggering flash units, the effects that different modifiers have, how light to subject distance affects the light quality and some classic lighting set-ups. We also cover how to choose the right lens and the best angle and height for different shots and how to use reflectors and flags to both add and remove light.

The majority of what we study during the day only requires one light meaning that you can go away and practice with very limited equipment. After this one day workshop you should be able to confidently work with both clients and experienced models in a photographic studio and achieve a variety of different moods and effects.

Shoot 1: Learning how size of light source relative to your subject, positioning of your subject relative to your subject and the inverse square law helps shape face and control contrast.

Shoot 2: Learning portrait lighting patterns, butterfly.paramount, broad, short including loop, closed loop and Rembrandt.

Shoot 3: Shooting full length white outfit against a white background and creating separation.

Shoot 4. Shooting full length black outfit against a black background and creating separation.

Please note this is a skills workshop aimed at teaching understanding of light. We also run styles workshops: Boudoir, Hollywood Portraits, Art Nude, Beauty and Fashion, Dance, Pin-up.
