This workshop does exactly what it says on the tin; it is a dedicated day of training to get the most out of studio lighting equipment. Learn to skillfully manipulate light and master the art of producing beautiful portraits.
What you will learn:
You will learn how to use hard light, soft light, key light, fill light, kickers and backlights empowering you to be able to create portraits of all styles. Learn how to control contrast, how to separate the foreground and background lighting in a shot, and how to use reflectors in beauty photography. There is no substitute for a thorough understanding of light and its application when creating portraits in the studio. This masterclass in lighting will demonstrate how studio space can be used to give you total control of your environment. The skills and the knowledge you take from this workshop will be equally valid whether you work on location or in the studio.

Who should attend?
This workshop is recommended for portrait photographers who wish to expand their creative abilities in a studio environment. All participants should know how to use their cameras.
What you will have at the end of the day to take away:
1. You will be shooting portfolio images you can use right away, on your website, in brochures or on your studio walls. The models we use are professionals and will be patient with us.
2. You will have a new repertoire of lighting styles and images you can shoot in your own studio spaces. This will give you the edge over your competition and you (hopefully!) will feel a renewed excitement for studio shooting.
