What you'll learn in this photography class:

Welcome to the Studio! Classes will consist of full hands-on shooting using pro photo equipment provided by us, weekly assignments and plenty of experimentation. You don't need to own studio equipment, just have a camera with Manual mode.

You'll learn how to use the photo equipment including soft boxes, umbrellas, snoots and flash-meters. You'll do exceptional lighting effects as well as adjust your shoot for exact results. From classic lighting such as key light & fill light, to white on white. Additionally, you'll learn how to work with mixed lighting (Ambient and flash), motion blur with flash. The Lighting effects learned in this workshop are top notch and will provide you with solid experience in lighting that is applicable outside of the Photo Studio. 

This course is an excellent opportunity to experience Photo Studio shooting without the extra cost of Photo studio rentals and equipment. We highly recommend taking this course to fully understand lighting in and outside of the Studio. 

Available versions:

5 sessions, 2-hour classes

3 sessions, 3:15min classes

Requirements: Any camera with Manual mode and to know the basics of exposure in Manual mode (SLR, Mirrorless, Point & Shoot).

Studio equipment is not required.
