The Workshop

Tuesday, May 18 we had a studio-lighting workshop with Pawel, an instructor at Szkolafotografii in Sopot.
Pawel demonstrated how to move soft boxes around the studio to manipulate light on the model's face. He also taught us how to use the light meter (pictured).
After his demonstration, we put his techniques to work. We split up into pairs and photographed each other, working on the lighting techniques he taught us. The hands-on approach really enhanced the experience and reinforced what he said. When we were finished shooting portraits of each other, Pawel projected our works on the wall and did a short critique.
