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 half-day 1-2-1 Introduction To Studio Lighting Course 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.
This course is ideal for anybody who is looking to step into the world of studio photography and covers all the essential skills and knowledge you’ll need to progress quickly. You are also welcome to bring along a friend or family member with you as up to 2 people can attend this course at no additional cost.
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.
This is a beginners course and as such, no skills are required to attend this course. The only equipment you will need to bring with you is your camera and lenses.
Up to 2 people can attend this course at no additional cost. Group bookings of more than 2 people can be arranged, please get in touch.
You can choose to start this course at either 9am or 2pm. This is a half day course, we’ll run until finished but they usually last around 4 hours long.
This half day course will run for around 4 hours.
This course will take place at our custom fitted small home studio based in Newquay, Cornwall, UK unless agreed otherwise prior to booking.
I get a lot of requests for help with camera equipment recommendations, almost daily in fact and offer a Personalised Photography Equipment Recommendation service which you can find by clicking here.
Recommending a camera and the best lenses to buy really has lots of different factors involved in it which need to be investigated first such as what the equipment will be most used for, budgets, your expectations on image quality, your current level and aspirations, etc. Hence the above service so we can really drill down into finding you the best equipment.
Alternatively, some people attend my courses and borrow a camera from me for the day to do so, we can then incorporate this recommendation as part of the course at no extra cost. The benefit of doing it this way is that I have a lot of cameras and lenses you can try and see the difference between prior to purchasing anything. The downside is your not learning on your own equipment of course, so there are pluses and minuses to doing it both ways, it depends on what you think works best for you.
You certainly can, you’ll find our range of photography training gift vouchers by clicking here.
