This roughly 4 hour intermediate workshop runs on Sunday, February 9th starting at 11:00am. It is a follow-up class to our Lighting 101 class. Students must have completed Lighting 101 prior to taking this workshop or have the necessary skills and knowledge that Lighting 101 teaches. A link to our Lighting 101 is at the bottom of this page for quick reference.


Lighting 201 is an interactive, intermediate-level workshop that includes both instruction as well as hands-on guided shooting. The focus of this workshop is on lighting control and artistic considerations of flash photography. Students are required to have a basic understanding of exposure control and flash use. For students new to flash photography, we have our Lighting 101 class that should be completed prior to attending the 201 course.
The primary objective of the workshop is to increase each participant’s knowledge and abilities relating to using artificial light to control exposure, mood, and other effects in photography. The workshop will be heavily skewed towards creating photos with the use of flash and studio strobes and primarily covers portrait work, but may also include lighting for products and still life as time permits.
