Level up your portrait lighting skills and knowledge while capturing evocative portraits for your portfolio!
Level: Intermediate Date: Saturday 28 January 2023 Time: 11am – 1pm Cost: $198 Instructor/Mentor: Seng Mah Location: Digidirect Cannington (12 Cecil Avenue, Cannington) Maximum participants: 6
Course pre-requisites: You need to have done basic studio lighting training and be comfortable shooting in Manual Exposure mode with your camera.
If you have completed an introductory studio lighting course and now yearn to level up your portrait lighting, then this event is just for you! It’s both a workshop/shoot AND a portfolio-building event, as you’ll be shooting and creating imaginative portraits that you’d be proud to add to your portfolio!
This workshop is designed for portrait photographers who want to get creative with lighting — breaking rules for creative results and working lighting to deliver emotive and visual impact. Our focus will be on portraits that evoke emotion, that tell a story, that say something about the person or character.
Through hands-on shooting, you will learn about the effects of different modifiers (octabox, softbox, stripbox, grid), and how you can add creative results with different types of modifiers and accessories. All of this while you’re capturing portraits of our models!
This event is limited to only 6 photographers (3 photographers per portrait subject during shooting) in order to optimise your learning and shooting experience. Book in early so you don’t miss out!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
Your interchangeable lens camera
Lenses that cover the focal length range of 24mm – 200mm
If you are using a mirrorless camera, make sure your “live exposure” or “exposure simulation” is turned off (this is for studio shooting). Please refer to your manual to find out how to do this.
You don’t need to bring a tripod to this workshop.
