Lighting can make or break an image and understanding how to use studio lighting in your photography can be confusing, this course is designed to guide you through the science, variety and best practice of studio lighting. Throughout this practical course, you will dissect studio lighting looks created by well-known photographers and use a model to demonstrate and understand the behaviour of light and how to manipulate it. Working in a studio environment you will be hands on with flash lighting equipment, backgrounds and props and learn the do’s and don'ts of positioning your subject.
The course’s aim is to equip you with the technical tools to add another layer of creativity to your portraits. Each participant will have the chance to trial different lighting techniques, using a selection of light modifiers and will leave with a selection of work to add to their portfolios.
We will be publishing new class dates soon - please register your interest and we will be in touch with more information.
All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
