This 3 hour workshop is aimed at photographers who are considering exploring studio photography – portrait, still life or product. It is would be ideal for anyone considering buying their own basic lighting equipment, or thinking about taking a longer course.
You should have intermediate or higher camera skills: comfortable or aware of managing exposure using ISO, shutter speed and aperture controls. (Having said that – there are plenty of working studio photographers who rely on assistants for technical input – a sense of creativity, engagement with people and fun are just as important.) We will be working in Manual mode, but don’t let that put you off if that isn’t how you normally work. Managing exposure in a studio environment is an excellent way to consolidate other camera skills – many people find studio work provides several opportunities for things you have learned to ‘click’ into place.
The workshop will cover basic lighting set ups, typical equipment and managing exposure using a flash meter. Maximum of 4 students. Please get in touch if you have any questions…
