If you feel confident shooting regular images, you might consider taking your photography to the next level. In this Studio photography course you will learn how work with lights and other studio equipment. Today, basic studio light equipment can be purchased for very affordable prices and you can even build your small studio at home or even take the lights out on location.
The main advantage of using studio lights is that you have all light under your control, which also means that you have to know what to do with it. We will talk about couple of standard light setups using one, two or three lights with umbrella, softbox or reflector and also about manual camera settings. Big part of any studio photography project is working with live model or positioning product and we will practice that too.
