Studio Lighting Workshop | Ireland – 10th March 2014
This Lighting workshop breaks down the complex subject of photographic lighting into something you can understand. The focus will be on practical “hands-on” techniques and Padraic will show you how to best light your subject in his own studio.
Light is the key element in effective and meaningful portraits and this workshop shows you the tools you need and provides essential lighting techniques. Light defines the mood, the form, the texture and sets the stage for the essence of the subject to shine through.
You will gain an in-depth understanding of lighting techniques and the quality of light to improve the impact of your photographs.
This hands-on workshop will cover the following subjects:
- Lighting ratios.
- Quality of light using beauty dishes, softboxes and grid spots.
- Depth of light or altering the shadows by use of reflectors and fill lights.
- Lighting Styles.
This dynamic lighting workshop is designed to help you master the use of strobe lighting to achieve outstanding portraits. You will increase your lighting skills by using a variety of lighting equipment.
Padraic will demonstrate a variety of techniques with multiple light set ups, high key and low key lighting and beauty dishes. The quality and direction of light, matched with our subject and composition, defines the overall effect of the image, whether it’s soft and warm or bold and graphic.
Padraic will teach you how to “Light” the portrait by utilising a variety of modifiers to create dramatic and unique photographs. By developing your skills with various techniques you can unlock your creative instincts and make evocative and powerful images.
