So last week Thursday I had a blast going to a night class for the topic Studio Photography. The class was held at the Saiful Nang Academy of Photography or rather SNAP in short.
It was a class for beginners and intermediates, at least I think so that is. It gave me great insight into the world of studio photography. At first they provided a simple lecture on the topic. It was the practical session that made my day. Students were taught how to produce basic lightings such as Rembrandt, Butterfly, Loop Light, Rim Light and also a mixture of the lightings. More importantly we experimented different kinds of light setup and see the outcome ourselves.
All in all I think it was a great class. Plus I was able to edit the portraits I took that night myself since I already went to their basic Portrait Editing class.
Here are the photos I took that night:
This was produced with a two light setup. The front being the main light and the back providing a rim light. The rim light is not fairly visible on the body in this photo since we used an umbrella directed towards the face therefore a harsh light is produced. A bigger diffuser on the rim light source would work the magic I think.
This photo was produced with a single light source with a honeycomb modifier. A honeycomb light modifier focuses light therefore resulting in a photo with a highlighted subject.
This last photo is produced with the same setup as the first photo. The reason I posted this up is because this is the teacher who taught us that night. Thank you!
