Lighting for Professional and Home Studios 1 Day Workshop

Workshop Description

Our lighting workshop is a fast paced filled with a little lecture and lots of hands-on demonstrations of photographic lighting for both professional and home studios. Students will have the opportunity to "be the photographer" by setting up and adjusting the positions of strobes as well as taking photographs during the demonstrations. You may also bring a model or two!! If you would like to bring a model
e-mail us at least 1 week prior to the workshop for approval, no models will be permitted without prior approval of the instructor. Although
we will cover the how to's of lighting, we also keep this workshop relatively non-technical. We will use studio strobes for most of the demonstrations to save time but we will explain how you can substitute camera flashes or continuous lights (hot lights) for studio strobes.

Workshop Topics Include

  • Using a single strobe, flash or continuous lighting unit (Hot light) for lighting.
  • Multiple strobes flash or continuous lighting units (Hot lights) for lighting.
  • Even lighting vs. Ratio (Uneven) lighting.
  • "Beauty" lighting.
  • Hard and soft lighting.
  • Using soft boxes, umbrellas, reflectors, snoots and other equipment.
  • Eliminating shadows vs. embracing shadows.
  • Direction vs. non-directional lighting.
  • Much more.
