Introduction to Studio Lighting

  • Mar 5, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This workshops will cover basic studio lighting techniques and terminology so you will have a basic understanding of how to use studio lighting. The evening will be broken into two areas; theory and a practical session.

We will cover:

The basic properties of light:
Colour, hard and soft lighting
High and low key lighting
Use of different types of light modifiers (soft-boxes, snoots, reflectors, barn doors.)

We will look at the camera in relation to studio lighting, specifically:

Shutter Sync Speed
Aperture
ISO
White Balance

For the practice session we will look at a basic one light set up, then a more advanced two light set up and we'll work on high and low-key lighting with our model.

The workshops are approximately 3 hours in duration and will include theory as well as practical shooting.

Our Kit:

We will be using 2 Bowen Monolights as well as light modifiers to experiment with. We have all of the equipment you will need so don't worry about flash triggers, just bring your camera.

What you will need:

An SLR or similar camera with standard hot-shoe. We can only provide a Sony adapter) if you have another type you'll need to provide your own adapter.

A suitable lens

We're shooting in a relatively small space, so while any standard lens will work; a 35mm, 17-55 or a 24-70mm lens will probably be best.

A clean memory card

The model will be expecting to take away a copy of your images at the end of the session. You will need to shoot Jpeg or Raw with Jpeg. Please come with clean memory cards so we can download the images quickly.

It will be helpful if you have a basic understanding of how your camera works. You need to be able to:

Change the ISO
Change the white balance
Change the shutter speed
Change the aperture

Have a look in your manual if you're unsure, and bring it with you if necessary.

There has been a problem with the elevator, so take the stairs right next to the elevator if necessary.

Check the refund policy and if you need to cancel your place, change your rsvp on the website so it can be filled by another member.

There is no waiting list for the event.

    This was my first experience of a studio or a photography workshop and I was very impressed. Like most attendees I came alone so was pleased to see a good friendly mix of people, knowledgable and inspirational tutors and a very friendly and patient model! Would definitely recommend to other beginners and look forward to attending more groups in the future and getting back in the studio..
