Description: 

Delivered from Holborn Studios, just a short walk from our Shoreditch premises, this course is aimed at beginners and intermediate photographers alike. No prior studio experience is necessary although a basic understanding of exposure and how to operate your camera is required. 

The aim of the course is to learn about the importance of light and how to control it as well as the relationship between photographer and sitter. You will work with studio flash and each participant will get plenty of hands–on time taking photographs.

You will concentrate on head and shoulders compositions and learn how measure exposure using the light meter. You will gain confidence using one flash head and reflectors to create an evenly lit subject.
