Introduction - Have a chance to meet your lighting consultant and model and enjoy a nice cuppa with them

Learn to position your lighting - During this phase of the day we will learn about different face shapes and making the most out of them by simply positioning your model and lights correctly

Have your chance to create - During this part of the day we will break you down into small groups where you will have your chance to get your hands on the lighting kit, and see what movements make what changes

Break for lunch - We will be laying out a buffet spread on the day, so you can relax and take a few moments out whilst you refuel.

Modifing your light - During this part of the course we will look at the effects created to each shot by using a harder, softer wider or more direct source of light

Finalising an image - At this point you will have a chance to go back to your group and reshoot your original shot, using the new knowledge of modifiers and change the look of it by choosing the required softness from your light source and modifier for your style of image

During this full day session we aim to teach you the advantages and disadvantages of placing your light correctly and how to modify that light to create the shadows detail required for your final image. 


Position Your lighting

• Clam shell lighting 

• Rim lighting 

• Rembradt lighting

• Loop lighting

• Hair lighting

• Lighting your background

Once going though the different positions you will have your chance to work as a group and to set up the look you would like to create using the positions we cover.


After this we will take a short break for an included lunch buffet. (details to be confirmed - please advise on any diety requirements)


With so many choices of positioning your light, and many more options of positioning your model this masterclass on lighting will help you to get a better understanding of the ways light can change the way we look.  After getting to grips with positioning your lights we will then further this control with brushing up on the differences between a range of modifiers, how to control the shadow edge and detail in the light, how to break away from standard softbox lighting and create a much more visually appealing image.

Modifying your light sources will encompase:

• Softboxes with and without grids

• Beauty dishes with and without grids

• Deepdish reflectors with and without grids

At this point we will return to the lighting setups you have tried and change the modifiers accordingly to compliment the look you were going for.

By the end of the day you will have a great understanding of how to create different looks for your photography.
