Introduction to Studio Setup and Lighting

This studio and flash photography workshop will offer an introduction to setup and studio lighting.

We will start with a 'blank studio area' and we will assemble the seamless background, the flash heads and accessories. Then we will light a typical portrait setup using a flash meter and single, and then multiple flash heads.

You will learn how to set up a studio to shoot, how to manage monoblock flash heads, softboxes, light modifiers, flash settings, ratios, how to work with wireless flash triggers.

Each attendee will have the opportunity to shoot using the setup, and using the wireless studio flash system.

Bring your camera and your enthusiasm.

Model participation is probable; but, not guaranteed. We will be our own model if need be.

This workshop is for members who are beginners to intermediate level.

    Thanks George. This was my first time shooting in the studio and found out it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to get great shots. I learned a lot and had a great time. Victoria was a pleasure to work with.

    Hi Rachel, The studio is on the corner of Aldo and De La Cruz and it has it's own parking lot. Sometimes it fills up but there's almost always something available close by.
    I enjoy these workshops and I look forward to them too.
    See you all tomorrow.

    Hi Ruchi,
    No matter what an attendees experience level, they are going to learn some things. Usually the absolute beginners learn the most. That said, it's usually the beginner that's a bit further along to intermediate photog that retains a little more.

    You already stated that you meet the requirements, a basic understanding of how the camera operates. I think it will be great for you as you'll see a side of photography that some really don't ever see. The workshop is also just plan fun.

    Studio photography is in a controlled environment and is therefore different that the photography we normally use. You will learn more about light than about the camera. Luckily, as they say light is light and much of what you learn is transferable to other photography. You will learn about portraits and lighting for them which is transferable to outdoor portrait.
    Please read the reviews from past lighting workshops and join us.

    Hi George!
    I just wanted to know what are your expectations from the attendees of this workshop, i.e. what do you think attendees to know already so as to benefit from this workshop? I have been considering attending this workshop in a while. But not sure if its appropriate for me at this time. I am an absolute beginner and an amateur and just starting out in photography. I have very basic entry level camera Canon EOS Rebel T2i. So far, I have been exploring and understand how to operate my camera on a basic level. However I am learning every day and would like to learn about studio setup and lighting too. Just not sure, if this workshop is right for me at this time or future. Pl. advise!
    Thanks!
