What you'll learn in this photography class:

Understanding that lighting is essential indoors, you now know that it can ruin your shot if not lit properly or make a significant difference. Not only can you flatter who or what you are shooting, but you can alter the feel of your portrait by changing your lights. You have the choice of a light, cheery portrait or a serious and dramatic look just by your studio lighting. Understanding and know how to light indoors gives you the control of what you want to achieve.

Once you develop a taste for indoor photography, it is only a matter of time before you will want your own studio lighting setup. A studio setup can be anything from a few table lamps, and a spare sheet for the background, to an elaborate multi flash system. This class helps students learn which light sources and materials are appropriate for the studio photography you anticipate.

In this course, students learn fundamental lighting setups and familiarize themselves with the lights, light modifiers, and the why of studio lighting. In class, students perform several live lighting plans and explore the technical and aesthetic results of each. The instructor provides hands on instruction and students develop understanding of the importance and methodology of studio lighting to achieve image goals. Students leave with the needed knowledge necessary to explore lighting equipment for the studio and other learning goals and also ready to shoot indoors with studio lighting.

Topics Covered:
  • 1, 2 and 3 light ups set ups.
  • Essential student lighting equipment
  • When and why to use lighting modifiers
  • Thinking light and how to make creative and technical choices
Materials needed:
  • DSLR Camera and 1 or more zoom lenses
  • Tripod (recommended)
Prerequisite:
  • Have taken "Basic Digital Photography 1" or equivalent
Qualifications:

Introduction to Studio Lighting
Reviewed by Anonymous on 1/15/2018
Overall I had a good experience in this class. At times it was a bit more beginner than I had anticipated. Taking time to show us how to turn on the power switch was a little too basic for me. I understand there are some people who don't know how to power on a light... I would have like to have spent more time learning how to actually light subjects, and about different types of lighting... which is what I had thought the class would be more focused on and less on how to plug in lights, turn them on etc.
