Studio Portraiture and Lighting

Class Details

It is time to put the spotlight on your portrait  photography with our new class! Are you ready  to take your portrait photography to the next  level? Can you even believe it is as simple as  adding one light? Well, with the help of one of  our instructors, Jon Campbell with over 20  years experience in photography, you will leave  this workshop with a great understanding and  ability to expertly light your photos with amazing  techniques!

This class will be a study of light and how to put  it to use in portraiture. Jon will show you how to  use the lights quality and direction to produce  glamour images as well as portraits that give the  subject depth and dimension. As we will be  working with a live model, you will also learn how  to direct a model/client so that the images you  create help the person look their best. Gain the  experience you have been looking for with a small workshop and plenty of hands-on experience with the equipment and the model to produce truly extraordinary photos.

This meeting will show you how to make portrait images with professional results. We will be using simple and effective lighting techniques, using one and two light setups that work every time. If you can learn to work with only one light source, you can work in any environment, indoors or out. We will be using flash lighting to produce award-winning images with impact.

The techniques we will use are simple, and will apply to any lighting source you happen to have at your disposal.

For those of you looking to step up your photography skills and gain some valuable experience then this is a must take class. It will provide all of the appropriate knowledge you need to enhance your images using flash portrait photography.

*Please have already taken the Photography 102 class or be comfortable manipulating your camera’s manual settings.
