Inside the Photographer’s Studio

The great thing about studio photography is everything is under your control to get the photos you want. The hard part, though, is you have to control everything to get the photos you want…

In this class we will introduce you to the concepts and equipment used in studios to make portrait, commercial, and fine art photos that really grab people’s attention. You will get a crash course in how to work in the studio environment, the different equipment used in the studio, and composition concepts for different types of studio photography. A big focus will also be on will be on lighting, this is what makes or breaks an image in the studio. Soft light, hard light, hair light, and more, we will break down the different types, their effects on the scene, and how to position your lighting to make great images.

Whether you are just getting started in the studio or if you have been working with professional lights but want better control of your results, this is the class for you!

Type: Indoor Workshop

Activity Level:  Low. You will be indoors, but expect to do a bunch of standing.

Things to know: This will be a combination of learning how to set up a studio along with a little photography time.

What to bring:  A short telephoto will likely get the most use with a wide angle lens being beneficial as well. A flash is helpful but studio lighting equipment will be available for the artificial lighting work as well. Tripods are always a benefit and you will likely be able to do both tripod and handheld work.
