Studio Lighting For Beginners

Studio and off camera lighting isn't as scary as you think.  

If you're a photographer looking to move into the studio and give your portraits the punch that you think they should have, this is the course for you.  We've teamed up with professional studio and wedding photographer Barry Philips of Aura Photographic Society to bring you this bespoke course.

Not only will you learn the theory, you will try out several single light and several multiple light set ups with a professional model.  Not only will you build the confidence to start your studio photography journey, but you'll have some great images (great for club photographers who want images for competitions).
