‘Training In A Flash’ – Studio Lighting Workshops

During the winter months I have been concentrating on studio lighting evenings with the days being too short and weather too cold for off-camera flash days.

As the winter is (hopefully) drawing to a close I thought it would be an opportune time to blog with some of the images from several studio lighting workshops over recent months. These studio lighting evenings were casual, relaxed and hopefully fun and informative for all those who attended. I kept numbers to no more than 6 photographers on each evening, with the intention to provide a personal and high quality experience to all who attended. On each evening we also had a model with professional make-up application and hair styling, and photographers brought their own cameras for practical participation in the various lighting setups.

Here’s a selection of images from both ‘Introduction to Studio Lighting’ and ‘Creative/Advanced Studio Lighting’ evenings held over the winter months, including some behind the scenes.

I still hope to hold another couple of studio evenings over the coming weeks, and following that I’ll be starting to concentrate on off-camera flash days on location.
