Studio, Location & Flash Lighting
Our studio lighting course, location lighting course and flashgun course cover the essentials of ‘making’ as opposed to ‘taking’ photographs using flash, tungsten and mixed lighting. All our lighting courses are taught by experienced practitioners at our London premises, located in the heart of Brixton’s vibrant market.
Introduction to Location Lighting
When on location it is extremely rare that the ambient light is just how you want it (especially in this country). Therefore the photographer must introduce some artificial light into the scene. Learning how to control this light – how to mix it with ambient light – is essential for those who wish to progress with their creative lighting.
Lighting Course | Beginners’ F-Word: Nikon and Canon Flashguns
This one day flashgun course for Nikon & Canon users aims to demystify the often intimidating area of using flashguns correctly and creatively. The day starts in the classroom by explaining how the Focal Plane shutter of a DSLR camera syncronises with the short burst of flashlight delivered from the flashgun. Once the basic theory has been understood we move into the studio and on location (with a model) and put the theory into practice.
