This workshop is aimed at those who are interested in learning all the possibilities that studio photography has to offer.

You will learn the different studio flash lighting techniques to make beautiful portraits, still lives, or anything else you may have in mind!

A model will be provided for you to shoot during the session; advice on directing the model and posing technique will be given. We will also practice how to shoot objects, food and how to compose a creative still life.
