Portrait Lighting Workshop

Welcome to our Portrait Lighting Workshop!

Time: 7 pm to 10 pm

Strobist lighting requires an understanding of the uses of different light modifiers and how to control the lighting of your subject.  The skills and knowledge you obtain in this portraiture workshop will pay for themselves many times over and can be directly  applied to using off camera flash. Participants will use their cameras with studio strobes and modelling lights so that they have a set of images at the end of the workshop that demonstrate the various lighting arrangements for studio portrait photography that can be applied to strobist photography.

A. Basic 1, 2, 3 and 4  light set ups for portrait photography

B.  Lighting and posing subjects for portraits: - Glamour  - Business - Personal - Athletic - Artistic

C.  Lighting styles: Rembrandt - Butterfly - Clamshell - Profile

D. Use of beauty dish, umbrellas, soft boxes,  grids, and reflectors.

E. Use of backgrounds - white - black velvet - muslin

F.  Retouching software for color and B&W portraits including:  hair - skin - eyes - eyebrows - mouth

By the end of the workshop, you will be comfortable using studio lights for a portrait photography session and retouching the images for your client, at the Carriage House Studio or elsewhere.

Workshop Participants:  Maximum of 6 participants (SEE NOTE BELOW).

Cost:  95$  (includes use of Pocket Wizard)

Equipment Required: Digital Camera with Hot Shoe
