Photography Lighting Workshop (25 November 2015)

Learn the basics of studio flash photography and useful application to your own business / organisation or web outputs with our all singing, all dancing training session.

Get more confident of producing high quality photography for your own blogs, websites, and social channels with our training workshop and make a real difference to your photographic outputs whether for your website, social media or just for your own pleasure.

The session will be a mix of practical and no-nonsense theory (seriously, we’ll keep the jargon to a minimum). We’ll be finishing off the session with a Q&A plus a chance to chat.

What you can expect to get out of the session:

Tips to help you maximise what you can do with little or no equipment
Places limited to 6 to allow maximum shoot time and one-on-one support
Introduction to key studio equipment you need to start taking photos
Types of lighting / flash
Creative composition with practical application for websites, editorial and design
Moving away from auto-mode to control light and expand your creativity
Lighting advice (on a budget / realistic circumstances / flash)
Good amount of time shooting models and trying techniques


Shoot our models under different lighting conditions
Chance to have your own photos taken by others
Info and advice on different types of photography kit
Tips on how to get the most out of your camera.
Apps to help you process / edit and share your images
Q&A session with Alex Mills (
Drinks, nibbles and light bites to keep you suitably refreshed.

Everything from SLR cameras to iPhones welcome although we recommend that you bring a DSLR with a standard hotshoe flash attachment. We do have a spare camera too so no need to stress too much. (if shooting Sony, you will need to bring an adapter like one of these)

It is advised, but not essential that you familiarise yourself with these camera settings before the session:

  • Changing ISO
  • How to change aperture (referred to F)
  • How to change speed (usually shown as 1/125 )

Digital note handouts provided after the session.
