Saracen House Studio brings you another of Andrew Appleton's excellent studio lighting and photographic workshops.
Mastering Studio Lighting (Previously called Intro to Studio Lighting) is a course for experienced photographers who want to learn about the techniques required for photographing people in a studio. This workshop provides a foundation for several other studio based courses; Portrait Photography, Beauty and Fashion Photography, Art Nude Photography, etc.
As well as covering the technical aspects of studio photography we also explore how to interact with your subject(s) to get the best images.We start with studio flash, looking at shutter sync speeds, the best method of triggering flash units, the effects that different modifiers have, how light to subject distance affects the light quality and some classic lighting set-ups. We also cover how to choose the right lens and the best angle and height for different shots and how to use reflectors and flags to both add and remove light. The majority of what we study during the day only requires one light meaning that you can go away and practice with very limited equipment. After this one day workshop you should be able to confidently work with both inexperienced and experienced models in a photographic studio and achieve a variety of different moods and effects.
