Photographic Lighting Techniques
with Douglas Merriam
October 19 - October 22, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

“Doug is a phenomenal instructor. He’s patient with questions but constantly encourages us to think and see independently.”   Hilary Kline, former workshop participant

Ready, set, light! Within a couple of hours of starting this four-day workshop you are setting up strobes, metering, and photographing, and understanding that studio lighting is really very easy. Whether your primary interest is in photographing portraits or still life, this workshop covers the key basics of studio lighting.

While the main focus of the workshop is photographing people, and we have models to photograph as subjects, Doug also addresses the lighting principals necessary for beautifully photographing still lifes or food. Doug demonstrates a variety of lighting techniques, after which participants practice and play with the Workshops’ extensive inventory of professional lighting equipment, including strobes, soft boxes, and grid spots, to name a few. You acquire a comfortable knowledge of studio strobes and how to use them in any situation that may arise.

This is an all-in-one comprehensive workshop if you want to learn about studio lighting. We examine practical applications and review the technical aspects of studio lighting to develop an understanding and appreciation of light and how it works.
