Basic Studio Photography Class - Portrait - IV

  • Mar 22, 2014 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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)


The duration for this class is approximately 3 hours
The cost per participant is 100CHF
There is a limit of maximum 3 participants
There will be a model to take photos of
The class can be repeated to accommodate more people
The location is a Studio in Zürich


- Bring your own camera.
- optionally bring your laptop for post processing
- camera manuals are helpful if you're new to it.

PS: This is the third instance of the basic introduction for because of the limited slots available. Based on previous experience i will only confirm slots for those participants that have payed for their slot.
