STUDIO PORTRAIT SHOOT

This extensive hands-on learning and shooting experience is designed to take your studio photography to new creative heights.  During this six-hour event, you will learn core lighting principles and work with semi-professional studio lighting gear.

You’ll use your camera to photograph a creative model with multiple wardrobe changes.  During this event, you will make images that you’ll be proud to have in your photography portfolio.  Whether you’re completely new to studio photography or have a bit of experience, this workshop is for you.  

All you need to bring is your DSLR or mirrorless camera, lenses, and a desire to learn and take amazing photographs in a studio setting. 

This is a five-hour event which includes, but is not limited to:

  • Photographing a creative model with several wardrobe changes in varying lighting setups

  • Setting up your camera in manual mode for perfect studio results
    (no manual mode experience required)

  • Understanding core light theory (hard vs soft light)

  • Controlling "falloff" as a method of lighting single persons, groups, and affecting the light in your background all at the same time

  • Making the right decision about the focal length of the lens for the shot

  • Understanding the light modifiers you can use to design the specific lighting for a shot, and then getting hands-on setup experience

  • Controlling the strobes (lights) - all about power, metering, controlling exposure

  • Demonstration of a tethered workflow to allow real-time image capture on a computer for greater preview ability when shooting live

  • How to use a light meter for precise light measurement of the subject

  • Use of umbrellas, strip boxes, octaboxes, beauty dishes and more
