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

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

• Shutter Sync Speed

• Aperture


• 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.

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

Any standard lens will work; 35 or 50mm, 17-55 or a 24-70 or 70-200.

You should also have a clean memory card and fully charged battery.

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

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