In-Person Learning Class

Developing one’s own lighting style is the key to creating truly dynamic photographic images. Designed for students having completed Introduction to Studio Lighting – Part 1, this workshop will help students create their own sense of lighting design using advanced lighting techniques and specialized equipment. Further, students will progress towards fully understanding how to modify and control the quality of the light in order to create drama and mood in their imagery.

Each class will start with a lecture followed by hands-on exercises using the lighting equipment. Multiple-light setup demonstrations will cover the effective use of speed-lights (portable flash), Tungsten/hot lights and Kino Flo lighting. Participants will begin to develop their own style of lighting by learning to enhance mood and atmosphere, separate visual planes, reveal character and texture, and direct attention to provide more visual focus. Using models and still life, students will create their own light scenarios using their newly learned techniques and the equipment demonstrated in class. On the final evening, students will present their work in a group wrap-up, critique session.

Students are encouraged to bring a DSLR camera equipped with a hot shoe or sync connection.

This course is strictly limited to 12 students.

This course will meet at a beautiful new studio located in Cypress Hill area of Los Angeles, Fourteen Studios. The entire 5,000 sq. ft. studio complete with cyc wall will be reserved for the class.


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.
