Basic Studio Photography Class - Portrait

Studio Photography is the classic field of taking photos in a closed space, called a studio :) it involves scary items like flash lights, reflectors, backdrops ring lights and light meters.

This class is a basic introduction to studio photography using portrait photography as a starting point to understand the basics when working in a studio, before going to more advanced subjects.

I've spend the past 3 years in a studio and take about 15k photos per year in it. I want to introduce you to this field and teach you in small groups about this topic.

The idea for this class is that it is a step in a sequence of classes that takes you through the various areas of studio photography. Portrait, Fashion/Lingerie and Nudes. Each step adds to the equation, so when we're getting to the more difficult items you're well prepared for it.

In this class you learn
- How to setup your camera
- How to measure light
- How do studio flash systems work
- What is a ring light and how to use it
- Setup a basic light setup for a portrait/head shot
- Composing a head shot
- Postprocessing a headshot (lightroom)

    What a pity, it would take me almost 2 hrs to be there, since I'm in the mountains. I certainly would have filled the slot if the message came at 12.00. :-(

      Tom, trust me, this is not something i like. For the next event i will change the approach. Payment up front has worked for me in previous years. So it will happen for these events now too.

    all, there is a slot open. send me a mail here or [masked] with your number then i will give you a call. event starts at 1400, obviously we can wait 15 minutes or so, so if you're in Zurich, now is a good chance to grab a spot :)

    Hi all,

    confirming that tomorrow is a go. i noticed chances to the rsvp listing, given that people on the list could not make it. so if you're on the list, can you please make sure you can make it, should your name be on the attendees listing? :)

    Cheers
    Evert

      Hi evert, i just saw that you confirmed me yesterday afternoon, as I was before on waiting list. Am sorry but I didnt look at my messages yesterday. Might be a bit on short notice but I obviously cannot make it for the session happening now.

      December 29, 2013

    • Ev E.

      Ines, it was not me that confirmed you. It is the way the waiting list works. that is why there is a waiting list :) if you cannot make it, you should not be on the waiting list. Now it is very likely we have one empty slot that cannot be filled. Oh well more attention for those two that can make it.

      Alex, that is unfortunate, given the very short time notice.

    Hi all. the first round will take place coming Sunday, because places are limited please update your RSVP, so there is no empty seats or people left out.

    Thanks!

    I will also do a role call coming Monday for the attendees to confirm their attendance. there is a waiting list and i would hate to see a spot wasted. I hope that is OK for everyone.

    I found us a model that will hold still for the portrait photos, yo you're lucky, you don't have to look at my face all the time :)

    Hi all, just RSVP when you want to come. if there is a waitlist for a second round, i put up an doodle and setup the next event accordingly.

    Andres, all you need is your camera (and perhaps the operation manual)

  • Pascal (.
