About the Course

David will take you through from concept to execution, covering a range of simple (but effective) lighting styles and also some tethering tips in Capture One Pro and Lightroom. We’ll also discuss editing and retouching techniques in Photoshop to bring your image to life and give it final polish. You will be working with a model under studio flash lighting.  You’ll be able to practise retouching in this style, and feedback on your work will be given!

This Fine Art Portraits (Studio Lighting) Course is a mixture of classroom-based illustrated presentations and hands on practice.  The afternoon session comprises of a studio shoot, working with a model under studio flash lighting, after which there will be opportunity to review and process images in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CC under the guidance of the tutor.

To get the most out of the Fine Art Portraits (Studio Lighting) , it is recommended that students are able to control depth of field, capture motion and have an understanding of the ISO setting. These skills are taught on our Beginners Digital Photography Course.  Furthermore, it would be of benefit to have at least basic computer skills and some basic knowledge of Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop.
