This workshop will cover how to set up and measure studio lighting to obtain specific results in the image capture. We'll use key lights, fill lights, reflectors, color gels, light modifiers, umbrellas and soft boxes to properly light models. We'll emphasize what the result will be, then arrange the lighting system to obtain that result. We'll use meters with a studio flash system, implementing techniques applicable to any lighting system, studio flash or hot-lights. You'll get to photograph the model using all of the lighting setups.
