Welcome to our last Basic Lighting Workshop of 2016!

The best way to become familiar with the equipment and facilities in the Carriage House Studio and meet other photographers :-)

The skills and knowledge you obtain in this workshop will pay for themselves many times over. Participants will use their cameras with the studio lights so that they have a set of images at the end of the workshop that demonstrate the various lighting arrangements for each kind of photography.

By the end of the workshop, you will be comfortable using studio lights on your own, at the Carriage House Studio or elsewhere.

Our model for this workshop will be announced shortly.

(Note: We recommend that you take this workshop BEFORE the other workshops offered at the Carriage House; Lighting and Posing the Nude, Portrait Photography, Boudoir Photography, as these other workshop assume a basic knowledge of studio lighting.

A. Basic lighting set up for studio photography and posing with a model for: - portraiture - fashion - glamour - fine art nude.

B. Camera settings for synchronization

C. Use of umbrellas, soft boxes, snoot, grids, cookies and reflectors.

D. Sources and quality of light

E. Work with equipment in setting up and shooting in the four (4) different lighting arrangements described, using 1, 2 and 3 lights.
