What you'll learn in this lighting class:

Mastering the tools of lighting is the key to mastering studio photography. In this six-session workshop, students will gain a solid foundation of studio lighting and practical knowledge of light. Working hands-on with the equipment, participants will learn how to select the proper light source for their subjects whether shooting portraits, still life or product.

The class will start out with basic lighting setups and move into more detail with studio strobes, reflectors, fill flash, soft boxes, umbrellas, scrims, grids, snoots, flags, gobos and the use of light meters for better exposure. Students will learn about the quality, color and contrast of light to enhance their subject, and create dimension and depth. 

Each class will be a combination of lecture and hands-on time for each student to shoot using the equipment. Exercises will include photographing models, still life and product in order to develop a well-rounded knowledge of using studio strobes for various purposes. Students will leave the workshop with a practical and confident understanding of studio lighting and how to control it.

Students are encouraged to bring a DSLR camera equipped with a hot shoe or sync connection.

Skill/Experience Level: 
Students should have a working knowledge of their camera and the ability to shoot in manual mode.
