What Will Happen

This Lighting for studio portraiture using studio mains flash for is a practical, hands on Welshot Academy Evening for all photography enthusiasts wanting to learn how to creatively shoot portraits using flash studio lights. Learning about lighting, and how it works, is the single most important thing you can learn when it comes to your portrait photography. Rembrandt, butterfly, side and split lighting, using grids, getting creative, learning to see (and shoot) in black and white will help you to create, learn and inspire your photography. Your studio mains flash for his photography workshop will be taking place at The Bulkeley Hotel, Beaumaris, Anglesey.

Our Welshot Team Leaders will guide you step by step, showing you how to set up your first light, a second light, and more – adding a reflector, using a grid, coloured gels and, more importantly, how to get the picture right in your camera. You will also learn how to pose and direct your model to get the photo you want.
