This introductory course provides an overview of the essential principles, techniques, and tools for lighting in a studio situation. Demonstrations take place in the studio, exploring the primary lighting techniques using continuous and professional strobe lighting equipment and light modifiers. Through hands-on practice, participants will learn and understand the importance of direction and quality of light and how to use a light meter to measure the exposure to achieve consistent creative results.

You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images.

For the first day of class please bring your camera, lens or lenses, and any other equipment you plan to use during this workshop. In preparation for this class you should review your camera manual, and be aware that if your camera does not have a sync socket you will need to get a hot-shoe adapter that will allow you to plug the strobe sync cord into your camera. We will start every class by reviewing and critiquing your previous work along with the assignments done during the class. For the first class, please bring a few samples of the best work you have done, preferably as digital files and be prepared to explain your goals for the course and your photography.
