Most studio lighting books and courses try to impress you with multiple strobes setup. Students learn by copying the light settings and positions but they often fail to understand the "WHYs" and "HOWs"

The true essence of learning studio lighting is to understand how each single strobe contributes to the overall setup.

Too often, when an amateur could not achieve a certain lighting effect, they attempt to improve it by introducing another light. The confusion gets worse as more lights are added without understanding how each one works.

With just one strobe only, an expert studio photographer can give you more interesting lighting setting than an amateur using three or more lights.

This "ONE LIGHT ONLY" course will train you to master thoroughly the various lighting effects that can be achieved with a single strobe.
You will understand lighting principles and concepts so well that you can do wonders with just your speedlights, camera flashes. Good for those who can't afford to shoot in a studio frequently. You can apply your lighting knowledge in your daily photography, outside of a studio.

Less theory and more hands-on, every student will get lots of chance experimenting with studio lights under the attentive guidance of our instructors. With a maximum class size of 6 students at most, you don't have to queue and wait for your turn.

Once you understand the basics and fundamentals, lighting with multiple strobes become very easy and natural to you.

Topics covered:
(1) What to look out for in a good studio
(2) How to set up your own studio, at home, onlocation or a full-fledge one
(3) Getting familiar with both Bowens & Elinchrom lights, two most common brands
(4) Equipment handling and safety
(5) How to use one light efficiently & effectively

(8) Practical hands-on. lots of it

here's a portfolio shot by our instructors for a commercial advertising job executed for an international brand that sells tweety bird fashion products. Felicia Chin is the celebrity who endorses this advertising campaign.

A raw feel was preferred by the client for this job and the art director specifically asked for a photographic style similar to that of famed German fashion photographer Juergen Teller.

Hence only one light was used.

These images can be seen used as a billboard-sized advertisements in Bugis junction. It's a good example of how good images can be taken with just ONE LIGHT ONLY.
