While many photographers prefer the use of “natural light”, there are many creative advantages to using studio strobes.

This 2.5-hour intermediate level session is aimed at photographers with DSLR/Mirrorless cameras who have a good understanding of exposure and want to get better at lighting subjects in an indoor setting.  We will cover the following topics:

  • Simple light set-ups using one light and reflector
  • Multiple light set-ups
  • Controlling exposure
  • Light diffusion/modifier options & techniques
  • Triggering options 

This is a hands-on class, so bring your camera. Once you know how to use studio lights, your eyes will be open to a whole new world of creative photographic possibilities.
