Portrait Lighting

Class Description

Light is the single most important ingredient in creating photographs with impact. Exciting applications of studio lighting make it possible to transform the mundane into the magnificent. This workshop is designed for photographers seeking a broad understanding of artificial lighting techniques in order to achieve greater control over their images.


Studio Lighting can be elusive. Often it’s too harsh or too soft. It may be non-directional or too directional; too warm or too cool; it can even be too dark or too bright. We teach a solid technical foundation for portrait lighting that enables participants to surmount these common lighting challenges. Ourhands-on teaching style offers a thorough understanding of light quality and light-shaping tools. You’ll explore studio lighting in depth, covering such areas as light quality, light quantity and light direction.
