Introduction to Studio Lighting

Group Training for Beginners wanting to learn the basics of studio lighting

Three hour introduction – £69 per person*.
Perfect for beginners

A highly practical group session for up to 6 people covering everything you need to know about basic studio lighting.

Working with our model for the day, the session will include full demonstrations covering:

  • Introduction to different heads and reflectors;
  • Camera settings for studio work,
  • Use of light and how to set up different ‘looks’,
  • white balance,
  • backdrops.
  • Use of manual camera settings

Through practical demonstrations, this masterclass demonstrates a range of lighting techniques, explains the theory in simple terms and provides clear guidance supported by handouts. The emphasis is on practical work with a model who will help you develop and consolidate your understanding and help you gain confidence in how different lighting affects the final image.

You’ll also receive Handouts from each session along with ongoing support, via email, for 28 days after your workshop.

Groups have a maximum of 6 people, ensuring that you have the fullest opportunity to make the most of your session. All sessions take place in my fully equipped studio in Garforth, Leeds.
