What you'll learn in this lighting class:

Shooting in a studio provides a special opportunity to control light for portraits and full-body photography and is something that can be set up in the home.

Learn what's involved to make a small studio and how to equip it with the right gear. Spend the morning with Professional Photographer Roy Sewall exploring his small studio that has helped him create some truly unique photographs of people.

Equipped with two Alien Bees monolights, softboxes, umbrellas and wireless remote control, participants will learn hands-on about studio equipment, placement of lights, and wireless control of the lights.

The class will briefly discuss the alternative of using speedlite/speedlight type flashes. After all the equipment has been explained, participants will take turns photographing and being the person photographed.

This class is limited to just 4 people so each will come away with a solid understanding on how they might put together a studio or use lights in a similar sized studio.

Recommended Equipment:

  • A DSLR or mirrorless camera with a hotshoelenses in the range of 24mm to 150mm (35mm equivalent)
  • Extra memory card and battery
