You will get hands-on experience setting up light stands, backgrounds, booms, softboxes, snoots, gels and wireless flash triggers.

Through these lighting demonstrations you will learn the role each light plays in the studio. You will learn how to manually manipluate your camera, flash and a hand-held light meter for full artistic lighting control. Once we have set up and discussed the equipment, we will each take turns photographing multiple light plots. We will then take a 1 hour lunch break. The second portion of the class that builds upon the knowledge gained in the first portion of the class. Here we will expand our creative knowledge with advanced lighting configurations or “plots”. We will put the technical information aside and begin exploring the artistic nature of light. You will also learn the functionality of different light modifiers and how to manipulate them for particular artistic lighting effects. The purpose of this workshop is to fill your stylistic arsenal with creative studio lighting knowledge so you can become a master of light.

  1. The notes for the Studio Lighting Workshop have been emailed to all attendees. Please check your spam folder if you do not find the email in your inbox. I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning at 11am. Please be sure to bring your camera with a charged battery as well as a lens that allows you to zoom above 50mm. I would recommend a lens that is at least 100mm if you have one.
