live photography show - Creative Portrait Techniques

25th April 2019 - 18:00 BST / 13:00 EDT

Creative Portrait Techniques

Studio lighting for portraits can often look very similar to other photographers work, but this doesn’t always have to be the case. In this informative live show Karl will demonstrate lighting styles and techniques that are different from the usual standard, the often tired ‘softbox look’. Working with a model Karl will show you how to think and shoot more creatively. He'll show you not only how to work with some of the more professional tools, but also some options for homemade solutions for creative portrait photography.

A Guide to Lighting Emotion

To truly advance your studio photography you need a thorough understanding of how light can invoke different emotions. Light determines the mood, style and feeling of a shot and by having the right knowledge, you can control light and learn how to invoke a desired atmosphere by being able to identify  and use the correct tools for the job. There is a reason that the best movies have incredible lighting designers and the best photographs hold your attention — in combination with narrative, it is always lighting. Learn from a lighting master  how to transform your photography in this special live show.
