The class is based on lighting demonstrations and student shooting. A number of lighting modifiers are demonstrated and discussed. During the workshop participants will have the opportunity to create a studio portrait and execute a glassware assignment working with their cameras tethered to monitors allowing for immediate image feedback and instruction.

Emphasis is placed on finding a personal signature lighting style. This workshop is taught in the RMCAD photography studio.
