Mastering Studio Lighting With Andrew Appleton & Model Angela Hudson

Saturday 31st August 2013

@ The Photographic Studio - Sevenoaks Kent.

The first of 3 courses on how to photograph people in the studio.

The others are; Portraits and Beauty/Fashion Photography. The format

of the courses is a hands-on workshop with classroom sessions in

the morning and practical photo shoots in the afternoon. It is recommended

if you have no experience of studio lighting that this course is

completed before completing Portrait or Beauty/Fashion.

The course is suited to those who are experienced with their camera and

have not photographed people in a studio before as well as photographers

that have used a studio but need to hone their lighting skills. As well as

covering the technical aspects of studio photography we also explore how

to interact with your subject(s) to get the best images. We start with studio

flash, looking at shutter sync speeds, the best method of triggering flash

units, the effects that different modifiers have, how light to subject distance

affects the light quality and some classic lighting set-ups.

We also cover how to choose the right lens and the best angle and height

for different shots and how to use reflectors and flags to both add and remove

light. The majority of what we study during the day only requires one light

meaning that you can go away and practice with very limited equipment.

After this one day workshop you should be able to confidently work with both

inexperienced and experienced models in a photographic studio and achieve

a variety of different moods and effects.

Students are encouraged to submit work for critique after the workshop.

Refreshments are provided including a light lunch, please advise us in

advance of any special dietary requirements.
