Mastering Advanced Studio Lighting
June 3, 2024

The portrait photography studio is one of the most creative and versatile places to create images: from family portraits and intimate fine art to artistic headshots and personal branding.

But beyond the essentials of studio photography lighting, it is the perfect place to let your creativity loose!  In this intensive advanced studio lighting workshop, you will play, create, invent and practice techniques to push your studio lighting to create images truly unique to you.

This workshop is for those looking to add a touch of class and something different to their studio portrait lighting.  Each of our workshops is adjusted to suit those attending, and with a small number of delegates, we can pick and choose from the following:

  • Studio lighting modifiers and their impact on an image
  • Lighting the face and figure
  • Single-light portraiture (the simplest and most effective of all lighting patterns)
  • Multiple-light portraiture, from two, three and four-light configurations
  • Use reflectors and subtractors to add class to your images
  • Using hard light for dramatic portraits
  • Using soft light for beauty portraits
  • Using gels and gobos for added theatre
  • Posing and guiding your subject to get the best out of them
  • Lunch will be provided (along with limitless tea and coffee!)

The day’s objective is for everyone to leave buzzing with ideas and new techniques for creating stunning studio portraits.

The number of attendees is strictly limited to six in this workshop, ensuring everyone plenty of hands-on time with the studio, the lights and the models.  This is a hands-on day rather than a desk-based masterclass. Attendees are expected to understand how to set their cameras for studio strobes.  If you’re uncertain if the workshop is for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and we will happily talk you through it.

Each attendee will be invited to our exclusive (and private) Facebook Group, where we post all of the technical notes, behind-the-scenes insights, top tips and early bookings for our future workshops.
