In-Person Learning Class at LACP

Mastering the tools of lighting is the key to mastering studio photography. In this workshop, students will gain a solid foundation of studio lighting and practical knowledge of light. Working hands-on with the equipment, participants will learn how to select the proper light source for their subjects whether shooting portraits, still life or product.
 
The class will start out with basic lighting setups and move into more detail with studio strobes, reflectors, fill flash, soft boxes, umbrellas, scrims, grids, snoots, flags, gobos and the use of light meters for better exposure. Students will learn about the quality, color and contrast of light to enhance their subject, and create dimension and depth. Each class will be a combination of lecture and hands-on time for each student to shoot using the equipment. Exercises will include photographing models, still life and product in order to develop a well-rounded knowledge of using studio strobes for various purposes. Students will leave the workshop with a practical and confident understanding of studio lighting and how to control it.
 
Students are encouraged to bring a Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) or Mirrorless camera equipped with a hot shoe or sync connection.
 
This course is strictly limited to 8 students.
 
This course will meet at a boutique studio in Korea Town, Studio Q, 312 N Western Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90004.

Hugh Kretschmer https://hughkretschmer.net/ set his sights on a career in photography at the age of 13, when his father taught him how to print his very first photograph in the family darkroom. Since then, he has never looked back, receiving a BFA from Art Center College of Design, and launching his career as a photo-illustrator in the editorial and advertising arenas. His fanciful yet provocative photographs balance between art and commerce, and have brought him critical acclaim through numerous national and international awards, and have been the subject of many articles and industry blog posts, most recently in Juxtapoz and Huffington Post, Italy. His work is now represented by Fathom Gallery in Los Angeles and Fotografenwerk, Dusseldorf, while on the commercial side has garnered him a long client list that includes Old Spice, Huggies, Honda, Toyota, Kohler, Evian, New York Times Magazine, Time, Vanity Fair, and Oprah Magazine. Kretschmer is currently an adjunct professor and part-time instructor at both Santa Monica College and UCLA.
