It's time to get your hands on the lighting equipment and learn how to set up and use a studio. You'll learn studio lighting techniques and terminology so you'll have a practical understanding of how to use studio lighting. The session will be broken into two areas; theory and a practical session. We will be working in a spacious 800sqft studio close to Angel Station.

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.
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.
A suitable lens
Any standard lens will work; 17-55, 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:
• Change the ISO, white balance, shutter speed and the aperture.
Have a look in your manual if you're unsure, and bring it with you if necessary and we'll help you if needed.
Please answer both questions attached to your rsvp as this helps us with planning.
Check the refund policy and if you need to cancel your place and please change your rsvp on the website so it can be filled by another member.
There is no waiting list for this event. Please check back for available space.
