Studio Lighting Course

If you are into control-photography, creating your own lighting and producing dramatic images, this Studio Lighting Course is exactly what you need. Lighting, the fundamental concept of photography. This simple yet powerful tool defines form and texture, creates mood and can make or break a composition if you don’t understand it well.


Although the camera we use and how we use it is of paramount importance, our ultimate tool in photography is light and our ultimate goal as photographers is to master its science & magic. Good composition, subject, great pose, and appropriate background, all contribute immensely to making good pictures, but light will ultimately shout louder than anything else. The way our subjects are lit will make or break any photograph we try to capture any type of media we use.


This course provides the essential basic grounding in studio equipment and lighting techniques for use of artificial lights such as available light, modeling lamps, studio flash, and camera flash. You will also learn about light ratio by using a handheld light meter, a studio photographer’s tool.
