The very basis of photography is light. So it’s very strange that when it comes to learning photography, nobody emphasise anything about learning lighting. So taking matters into our own hands, we’re collaborating with The Acoustic Shack to run a studio photography workshop. And we’re emphasising on what other photography workshop neglects – studio lighting.

Participants are required to bring their own cameras (DSLR/Mirrorless) with a hotshoe and a laptop for post editing. However, if you do not own any of these equipment, please inform us and we will be glad to assist you.
What To Expect
This workshop is more of a hands-on approach. Every participant will be exposed to how and why the lighting is set up the way it is. You actually get to learn how light works, and how to modify them to work to your advantage.
You set up the studio lighting to achieve a certain effect. Learn how and why they’re set up the way they are. Experiment with variations of the “standard” set up, and shoot with it to see the different effects. Expose yourself to the professional lighting equipment that is normally used for commercial photography work.
I know that the flier says the time is from 9am to 12pm, but don’t be surprised if the time stretches way beyond what’s printed there. With active participation and asking lot’s of questions, we can expect to go beyond the stipulated time.
So Who Are We Shooting?
What’s more exciting than shooting an actual live model in an actual photography studio, right?… So for this workshop, we’ve the privilege to work with the beautiful Valerie Alexeeva, an Eastern European model.
Are We Learning More Than Just Lighting?
Well, if things go according to plan (and yes, we do have a long-term plan), this workshop is only the tip of the iceberg. We’re planning to conduct a comprehensive series of photography workshops. And we can’t start that without addressing the very basics of photography – lighting.
As to how we will get to the more advanced topics, it’ll all depend on how much support this workshop gets. The more people sign up for this workshop, the more they get to choose what areas of photography they want to progress into with later workshops.
So what’s in store for future workshops?… Fashion?… Glamour?… Abstract?… Artistic?… Special effects?… You request for it, and we’ll organise it.
