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.

Hugh Kretscchmer https://hughkretschmer.net/) left the corporate world, or shall we say it left him in 2001. He decided to pursue his dream of becoming an actor while freelancing as an IT professional. At some point during this journey, he stepped behind the lens bringing his knowledge and experience with theatre. Ever since then, he has been in the pursuit of capturing through photography, those fleeting moments with people.
