Welcome to our Basic Lighting Workshop!
The best way to become familiar with the equipment and facilities in the Carriage House and meet other photographers
The skills and knowledge you obtain in this workshop will pay for themselves many times over. Participants will use their cameras with the studio lights so that they have a set of images at the end of the workshop that demonstrate the various lighting arrangements for each kind of photography.
We will have a professional model so that you will have images for your studio portfolio.
By the end of the workshop, you will be comfortable using studio lights on your own, at the Carriage House Studio or elsewhere.
(Note: We recommend that you take this workshop BEFORE the other workshops offered at the Carriage House; Lighting and Posing the Nude, Portrait Photography, Boudoir Photography, as these other workshop assume a basic knowledge of studio lighting.)
