Introduction to Studio Portraiture

3 Sessions / 11 hrs

Baffled by all the lights, accessories and equipment you need for a studio shoot? This introductory studio course aims to break down the mechanics of studio lighting for all photographers.

Through a blend of lectures, hands-on sessions and critiques, students will develop a grounding in practical lighting applications. We begin the workshop revisiting basic concepts in lighting and exposure. Demonstrations with tungsten lights, studio flash and available light will show students how to control contrast, direction and colour balance. We will also learn to stage different portrait settings to develop familiarity with studio lighting.
