- Lighting the background

On this lighting course, we work with a model, and visit three different locations, two outside and one inside, to create a set of professional portraits that would grace any portfolio.

You will need a digital SLR with manual mode, and you will need your own dedicated flash unit and a way to trigger it off camera. Please contact us if you have any questions about this. This is a hands on, fairly intense day, you will be on your feet most of the time.
Limited to 6 places.
Cost – £125.
