Studio Lighting

7th April 2019

 

Studio lighting takes a bit of time to understand, but once you get the hang of it and understand it you can become very creative. People put a soft box on because the light is soft, they put a beauty dish on because the light is hard, but are they?

Do you know how a softbox works? Do you know how to create spot lights? Do you know why we have different size beauty dishes?

This workshop is put together to show you how modifiers work and how to create the best light from them. A model will also be present for this workshop so we can put the theory to test.

The day will be held at my studio and full details of the day will be given upon booking (Booking Ref: STL1) £75pp Max 6
