WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION 

A step-by-step introduction to modern studio flash equipment and techniques that enable photographers to understand and harness studio lighting. 

Explore beautiful light (hard/soft, warm/cold, high key/low key, shadows and highlights) and learn the quality of light created using today’s flash hardware. 

Following descriptions of how components in flash systems are designed, flash hardware techniques will be demonstrated, and students will experiment with various lighting scenarios, getting a “feel” for the right light. 

Subjects covered will include flash safety, modeling lights, power packs/monolights, synching with camera, reflectors, key/fill/kicker lights, softboxes, umbrellas, scrims, flags, gobos, and more.

Participants are encouraged to bring in a sample (magazine clipping, digital file, photograph, etc.) of a lighting technique that they would like to emulate. 

REQUIREMENTS: DSLR Camera and lenses are required. Students are encouraged to bring their electronic flash, tripod and any additional lighting gear. Participants are expected to have a working knowledge of their equipment. This workshop teaches fundamentals necessary for further studio lighting workshops at SPAO. 


PREREQUISITES:  Recommended prerequisite is Digital Photography I - Foundation or its equivalent. Enrolment is limited to ensure one-on-one attention.
