If you have yet to master studio lighting, perhaps you’re struggling to get to grips with it or perhaps you’re entirely new to the genre, then this one-day 1-2-1 Introduction To Studio Lighting Course based in Peterborough will help you to learn and improve your photography.
Studio photography doesn’t need to be expensive and you don’t need to own a spare room full of fancy gear to do it. We’ll talk through all the equipment we own and show the difference between all of the different modifiers we use, allowing you to decide which works best for you before purchasing any additional equipment.
Things You Will Learn On This Workshop:
- What different lighting modifiers do and how and when we use them.
- The different qualities of light. Hard v Soft light.
- Where to place your lights, how far away from the subject they should be and how this impacts your images.
- The falloff of light and how to change background colours using only light.
- The 5 most used lighting patterns used by photographers to sculpt the face.
- How to setup your lights and trigger them wirelessly.
