PORTRAIT LIGHTING INTENSIVE
April 8 to 11, 2011

Understanding and controlling studio lighting and applying it to portraits is one of the greatest challenges facing a photographer. This workshop is designed to give the emerging photographer a strong foundation in all the elements of lighting, from esthetics to hardware. Lighting has many aspects that need to be addressed individually and then combined to create a meaningful portrait. The use of strobe lights, how they work and the step by step set-up is the first layer in the foundation. The participants will have hands-on experience every day working with the strobe power packs, umbrellas, boxes and grids. Metering techniques, stands, C-stands, booms, use of flags, diffusers, and reflectors are covered in great detail.

The three main elements of lighting are direction, quality and depth. We explore the intricacies of lighting patterns and how they define the face, how to appropriately choose the quality through the use of light modifiers and combine both of these with lighting ratios to set the mood. The most important element in portraiture is the photographer’s interpretation of the subject. All the aspects from lighting, posing, tonalities, mood, expression, camera angles to backgrounds must harmonize to create an effective photograph.

We will be shooting in Studio 1112 in Hollywood, complete with a cove and tons of equipment.
