This fundamentals of studio lighting class focuses on practical applications for portraiture. In-class demonstrations cover the unique properties and use of strobe equipment and continuous light sources, such as tungsten and LED lighting, as well as diffusers, specialized reflectors, focusing elements, and light shapers. Students learn to consider the direction of light, proper exposure, and lighting's effect on contrast and color balance. We also examine the properties of various lighting conditions and color temperature, including mixing daylight with artificial lighting.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.
