INTRODUCTION TO STUDIO LIGHTING - ONE DAY COURSE

New dates for 2018 coming soon!

If you are struggling with your lighting or are new to the world of studio photography then join me for a fun and informative workshop. If you are on a budget and don't have much gear, do not worry. I will show you how to shape and sculpt the face with just one light using every light shaper I own in my studio. This will allow you to decide which modifiers and which style of light suit you best before you make any additional purchases.

Below is a breakdown of what we will cover on the day.

  • Lighting modifiers. Umbrella or Softbox? White or Silver? We will explore all the options and what you need to use to achieve the results you require.
  • Quality of light. Hard vs Soft.
  • Light placement and distance to your subject - what this means for your images.
  • Light falloff and changing a background colour with light.
  • The five general lighting patterns and how to sculpt a face.
  • We will have a model to demonstrate all techniques in person and for you to photograph.

This workshop will take place in my own high street studio so you can see exactly how I work day to day with the space that I have and how I deal with any limitations and difficulties. Class sizes will be small and therefore intimate with endless tea, coffee & biscuits available!

SPACES ARE LIMITED SO EMAIL info@hcphotography.co.uk OR CALL  01727 260 444 TO BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW.
