WORKSHOPS:

Saturday 1 December
8am - 12pm - Studio lighting & posing

To get the best out of the studio environment you have to understand the concepts of light. Studio photography isn’t just about the various light shapers and settings on your studio flash, but how light falls. Understanding studio photography involves knowing how to move your lights and your subject to create vastly different effects and how to create differing areas of lighting to add drama and emotion to your images.

During this course we will spend an initial period working through the theory of studio photography including; learning that shutter speed no longer matters; learning how to work with aperture and power settings on flash units to control exposure; and learning how to position the light to create different lighting zones having control over the colour of your background.

During the practical side of the session we will set up a studio and explore the vast results that can be achieved from the simplest of single light set ups through to two lights and more complicated three light setups. We will also delve into how to construct a studio and explore the effects and usage of various lighting shapers including soft boxes, beauty dishes etc.

Saturday 1 December
12.30pm - 6.30pm - Advanced on camera and off camera Flash

Many people consider flash photography too tricky or difficult to learn or find the light too harsh and glaring. In most instances, hotspots and over exposure through the use of flash is often simply down to a lack of understanding.

During the session you will learn when and how to use your flash in a variety of situations and light levels from full daylight to night, banish the shadows forever with a simple guide to using fill flash, balancing foreground and background light, how on camera and off camera flash can change your image, compensating flash output to achieve accurate white balance and much more.

Sunday 2 December
8am - 2pm - Post Production: Lightroom & Photoshop

This workshop is designed to get you up and running with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop in just one day. Both of these programs are the industry standard for post production of images today.

In particular, what most people don’t realise is that Lightroom is so much more than a piece of processing software, it’s a complete image management and filing system. The course will teach you the introduction to Lightroom, how it works, setup, importing, exporting, the develop module and it’s tools and advanced processing with going out of Lightroom into Photoshop. When concentrating on Photoshop, we provide a full introduction to the basic Photoshop tools for photographers. The key topics are based around Photoshop and its relationship with Lightroom, which to use, when and how to make them work together to supercharge your image editing.

Our course is designed as an overview of how to work with the software to make it the very hub of your post production workflow.
