Have you ever wondered how those magazine photos were shot? Would you like to learn more about artificial studio lighting? This class can help! This is an introductory course in regards to lighting. You do NOT need to know anything about studio photography or lighting. This course will teach you the basics of studio photography. We will learn about the lighting equipment, how your camera controls the light, how to pose your subjects and how to get different photography effects using light. It is an advanced photography course in regards to understanding your camera. You must be comfortable using your manual settings.
This course includes weekly lectures, assignments based on those lectures and practice time in the studio to complete the assignments. We start from the basics of lighting and work our way up to professional level assignments. Each week, you will be given assignments that you can complete in the studio during a 2-hour block of time separate from our lecture time. During each class there will be a sign-up sheet availale for studio time. Certain hours of studio rental are included in the class price. There will be options if you would like extra studio time.
Please Note: This is a 6-week course. We will be skipping class on Monday, October 31st for Halloween and resuming class the following week, November 7th.
