What you'll learn in this lighting class:

This one-day studio lighting course is designed as a basic introduction to lighting portraits in a controlled studio environment. In addition to learning technical use of equipment, participants will explore why great lighting, composition and styling are important elements in the creation of a successful portrait, as well as delving into other techniques that will help the photographer in connecting to the essence of the subject.

The day begins with a discussion and demonstration examining the details of light quality. What makes a light source soft versus hard, and which quality is appropriate for portraiture? There will be discussion on lighting for skin tones, eyes and hair and ways of dealing with those attributes. Participants will experiment with assignments throughout the day, learning how to create and manipulate a wide range of light qualities. Basic light modifiers, including soft boxes, umbrellas, beauty dishes, and grids will be emloyed, with the strengths and weaknesses of each being discussed. The role of light in a photograph to create mood, depth, dimension, and texture will also be examined. Examples of successful portraits by legendary and contemporary photographers will be analyzed, serving as a source of inspiration.

After lecture and demonstration, students will work with models in the afternoon. All equipment will be provided. 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. A basic understanding of photography fundamentals is required.
