Lighting Workshop

Course Details

Photography is all about light. Smart lighting can solve many of the most vexing problems photographers face when on assignment. A bit of creative lighting added to a scene can transform an image from average to extraordinary and help you tell more compelling visual stories.

This hands-on workshop will introduce techniques for both location and studio lighting. Using the school’s inventory of lighting equipment we’ll cover tools and techniques ranging from a simple off-camera flash to stylized studio portrait lighting. Students who take this workshop can expect to see an immediate improvement in their photography. Work produced in this module can be used for other courses, modules or capstone.
