Studio lighting | Photography lessons | Wednesday April 17th | $35 (Repeat)

Studio lighting


Learning how to light a scene is the most important tool in a photographer's arsenal.  To give you the knowledge you need to proceed ahead with your discovery and learning photography, Maz Images is bringing this exciting 3 hour workshop to give you a working knowledge of lighting that will improve your photography skills.


This highly informative and hands on workshop,

is only


What we will learn from this session :

  • 3 different lighting setups (Butterfly, Loop and Rembrandt)
  • Short and Wide lighting for different faces
  • Light modifiers (Umbrellas, Soft-boxes, Grids, Snoots, etc.)
  • Understanding the physics of light for photography
  • How to measure the intensity of your lights
  • Difference between fashion and portrait lighting
  • 1, 2 and 3 light set ups

As you can see there is a lot of information being discussed.  To make sure you do remember what we have talked about you will receive a PDF file via email that contains lighting diagrams and explanations to help you along after the lesson.


We get a chance to shoot with one of my favorite models, Naima.

Who it's for?


This session is best for photographers who have a basic knowledge of photography and their equipment.  This session concentrates on how to set up a shoot in studio and not for learning how to use your camera.


What to bring?


  • Bring your camera along to take sample shots of our setups.
  • Fresh batteries
  • Freshly formatted cards
  • Favorite lens
  • Passion for photography
  • Sense of adventure and curiosity ;)


Technical Requirements
