Basic Studio Lighting (Feb Intake)
Now that you have mastered the basics of photography, how about learning how to make light work in your photographs?
This workshop will engage students in the basics of studio photography, including how to use strobes, light-shaping tools and theories behind lighting. At the end of the course, students will apply what they have learned onto an actual model shoot with guidance from the instructor. This will be followed by a critique session at the end of class.

Class size will be limited to eight per intake to ensure they get maximum attention from the instructor.
