The Introduction to Studio Portrait Photography Workshop is designed to give novice studio photographers the necessary grounding in theory and technique to start shooting their own studio portraits.
Beginning with a presentation on basic studio lighting theory, we will then move on to a practical session involving demonstrations and the opportunity for participants to take a few images of their own.
The practical session will start with a simple one light setup, demonstrating how to control contrast, highlight and shadow, with and without a reflector, as well as controlling the light on the background. We will then move on to a two light setup, using a main light and a fill light to control shadow depth. Finishing with a three light setup which combines a main light, fill light and hair or background light.
Other Topics Covered:
• Subject Body Positioning and Basic Posing
