Hello friends,

The Night Class series for 2014 is back!

Night Class.
Ideal for working professionals, hobbyist, or part-time photographers with a day job. This class is an ideal opportunity to learn hands on basic studio lighting. It's 4-solid hours from 8.00pm till midnight 12.00am. You can come straight from work, and get back home in bed, ready for your next day. It's just a fraction of your time, and a lot to gain.

Basic Hands-on Studio Lighting.
Since it's night time, it only makes sense to learn something in a controlled environment. Let's all spend some solid 4-hours to gain something for our knowledge.

"Hands-on" means that you get to shoot, measure light, set the light and learn some basic studio etiquette. This basic experience would be valuable for you in terms of opening up some doors to assist other established photographers and learn from them. Established photographers are looking for assistants that are reliable, dependable, knows what to do, and how to work around a studio environment.

Basic Expectations.
Here are some things can expect to learn in 4-hours.

  1. What the is a light meter/flash meter?
  2. Light  meters are expensive. How can I measure light without a light meter?
  3. Where do I position my lights?
  4. I'm a newbie and I don't have four lights... How do I light with just one light?
  5. How do I get that glossy white floor finish?

In short, when you walk out of our studio door, I want to make sure you walk away empowered with these skills, which are your basic survival skills in mastering studio lighting.
  1. You'll know how to measure light, and set exposure without a flash meter.
  2. You'll know basic studio etiquette, so that when you rent a studio, the studio owner's gonna keep you in his/her good books (which may get you some discounts, just maybe).
  3. You'll know how to light with one or more lights.
  4. You'll know how to manipulate simple light to create various background tones.
Small Class.

  1. To ensure focused attention, I can only take 10 persons for this night class. 
  2. You'll NOT become Joe McNally overnight in 4-hours, but I can assure you that you'll feel less intimidated with studio lights

Location of the Night Class.
9D, Jalan PJS 1/33
