    Courses description

    Learn how to use photographic studio lights to achieve different styles of photographic lighting.

    You will use use professional studio flash equipment (see camera info below) and/or professional continuous lighting equipment, and learn how to set up and operate these to control the lighting. Advice will be given on achieving the same lighting in a home studio on a small budget.

    We will try out different types of portrait lighting, and also have some time for tabletop subjects.

    For the portraits, we will photograph each other, so bring a hat or scarf if you want to.


    Other workshops with Martin Edwards:

    Developing Film in Caffenol (Coffee)




    You will need a digital camera capable of setting ISO, shutter and aperture:

    To use the flash kit you will need an SLR or a fully manual compact camera with a hot shoe.

    Other cameras can still use the continuous light system.

    Phones are OK provided they have an app for manual settings.

    If you have a tripod it will be useful, but a couple will be provided.

    If you have a smallish object or artwork you would like to photograph, bring it along.

    No need to bring anything else, unless you want a hat or scarf etc for props or anonymity!
