Studio portraits


“Studio Lighting Fundamentals” is the perfect jump-on point for photographers who want to get started with studio-based photography. It’s a hands-on, learn-by-doing course and will show you how to set up, use and shoot with up to two studio lights. More importantly, it covers key lighting techniques that can be the difference between an average studio portrait and a GREAT one!

We have teamed up with River Road Studios in Bayswater to provide this workshop for photographers who would like to get into studio photography but feel daunted by the cost of lighting equipment and the challenges of setting up your own studio space. River Road Studios is a fully kitted photography studio that is available for hire by the public. The Studios is offering a “3 for 2” special, where you can book the studio for 3 hours and pay for only 2 hours (this includes 30 minutes of support from River Road Studio staff). It’s a great way to learn studio photography and then get started by doing your own shoot in a professional studio!

What you’ll learn:

  • Setting up and using studio lights.
  • Using the modeling light.
  • Controlling and adjusing studio lights.
  • Creating hard light vs soft light.
  • When to use hard light; when to use soft light.
  • Lighting types (broad lighting, short lighting)
  • Shooting with one light.
  • Shooting with two lights.
  • Using key light and fill light.
