Join us for an illuminating journey into the art of studio lighting, led by photographer Nathan Cyprys. In this workshop, participants will be led through essential techniques for mastering lighting within a studio setting, leaning into the foundations of artificial strobe lighting and honing in on portrait and fashion photography.
Through hands-on guidance, participants will navigate the intricate world of light modifiers, reflectors, flags, and gels to shape light to their vision. Whether new to the realm of strobe lighting or seeking to refresh studio skills, this workshop welcomes individuals of all expertise levels.
Participants are encouraged to bring along a reference image that captures a lighting style they admire but find elusive to replicate. Our goal is to demystify the techniques and equip participants with the proficiency to recreate captivating lighting scenarios. In the 3-hour workshop, student volunteers will serve as models for testing lighting setups to foster skill development and confidence for their own unique studio photoshoots.
All the necessary materials will be provided.
