A short post but one that I’m happy to talk about. I attended a great workshop last week ran by renowned photographer Scott Choucino about Studio Lighting.

There were fewer people in attendance than I expected but this only meant that it was small enough to be taught quite personally. Scott and the team were lovely and as well as being extremely personable, they were very well versed in their skill, both technically and creatively.

It was a great place to meet fellow image creators with varying degrees of skill and expertise and was humbled by how open and kind they were.

he once did a photoshoot in a broom cupboard!

The workshop was 3 hours long with a good balance of theory and practical tasks. The length of time worked effectively because there was a lot to take in but everything was explained carefully with lots of time given to questions as well as discussion.

I learned about how to light subjects effectively and how different filters on a lighting kit can affect the look of the image. I learned that one doesn’t need a large space in which to shoot subjects, with one of the team explaining that he once did a photoshoot in a broom cupboard. I also learned that the distance of the subject from the light source can be very dramatic and once must be aware of how to adjust your aperture accordingly.

Following the success of this workshop, Scott and the team are planning to run these regularly and for someone who wants to sharpen their skills, this is great news. Even better is the affordable price. Given that I have seen workshops costing hundreds of pounds, these were delivered at a fraction of the price. I was so impressed that I have booked on the next one in a few weeks’ time and will share my experience on my blog.
