Introductory Lighting Workshop

For the most current list of classes being offered, please check the sidebar.

Introductory Lighting will discuss and demonstrate fundamental lighting techniques applicable to glamour, artistic, and portrait photography. The workshop will start with basic shooting scenarios and culminate in a full-production shoot with our featured model on set.

Course Topics

  • The difference between soft lighting and hard lighting, when and where to use each, and how to combine them.
  • Use of multiple lights to control and isolate lighting on both model and set, including applications of the above.
  • Lighting to the strengths of the model, to make the most of every shoot on both the commercial and artistic fronts.

During the second half of the course, Adam will demonstrate selective light manipulation, integrating basic lighting techniques into a full-production shoot on set with the workshop’s featured model, allowing the attending photographers to practice these skills through the lens.

Participation in this workshop will allow participants to walk away with several high-level images for use in their portfolios. And in the larger view beyond the workshop itself, application of these tools and techniques will take photographers miles down the road to creating images that combine technically sound execution with compelling mood and emotional impact.

Promotional model releases will be available for all participants for non-commercial use of images shot during the workshop.
