Week 6: Artificial Lights – Flash and Strobes

Week 6 workshop beckons! And this week, we’ll be touching on one of the most important aspects of photography – LIGHTS. We’d talked about natural light, and it’s now time to talk artificial lights, about flash and strobes! Even more so since the Studio Model Workshop is coming up on Saturday!

Well it does sounds technical, but it really isn’t that so! ‘Cause we’ll be showing you the different lighting set ups, and show you how to use the flashes and strobes! After the tutorial, there’ll be hands-on experiment! Some of you can act as studio models, for the others to take studio shots while making use of the lighting set up πŸ˜€ So do take note that we’ll be starting 30 minutes earlier than usual, in order to incorporate this ‘play time’ πŸ™‚ So feel free to bring your ‘toys’ along! Your cameras, your flashes, whatever you think you’d need in a studio!
