About This Class

Learn the classic studio lighting photography style principles and the skills that a professional portrait photographer uses.

These principles will move you away from amatuer portraiture and move you towards professional portraiture where you will understand how lighting patterns work and what the classic lighting conventions are.

This course was created using a virtual photography studio.  All elements are designed to be simple and easy to visually comprehend and understand using a virtual 3d environment.


All virtual studio sets in the course come with PDF downloads (Available in the Project Section) so you can set your own lighting to match the lesson sets!
