What you'll learn in this lighting class:

Developing one’s own lighting style is the key to creating truly dynamic photographic images. Designed for students having completed Introduction to Studio Lighting – Part 1, this workshop will help students create their own sense of lighting design using advanced lighting techniques and specialized equipment. Further, students will progress towards fully understanding how to modify and control the quality of the light in order to create drama and mood in their imagery.

Each class will start with a lecture followed by hands-on exercises using the lighting equipment. Multiple-light setup demonstrations will cover the effective use of speedlights (portable flash), Tungsten/hot lights and Kino Flo lighting. Participants will begin to develop their own style of lighting by learning to enhance mood and atmosphere, separate visual planes, reveal character and texture, and direct attention to provide more visual focus. Using models and still life, students will create their own light scenarios using their newly learned techniques and the equipment demonstrated in class. On the final evening, students will present their work in a group wrap-up, critique session. 

Students are encouraged to bring a DSLR camera equipped with a hot shoe or sync connection.

Prerequisite: Introduction to Studio Lighting – Part 1, or equivalent experience and instructor approval.

Hugh was a fantastic instructor; however, equipment was 1970's vintage and I was expecting current state of the art modern studio strobes.
