Starting with the basics

The course covers every area of how to create black background portraits in camera. Starting with what equipment you need through to how to use it.

It may surprise you if you are still earlier on in the learning curve but you do not need big fancy equipment to achieve great results, but the key is understanding what your limitations are with the equipment you have and how to over come them.

Desensitisation Process

Master how to introduce and desensitise a horse to lighting equipment. Horses can be flighty and dangerous creatures in a new and spooky environment, my techniques in addition to your existing horse sense can help horses quickly settle and relax allowing you to get the best from your model quickly and safely.

Lights camera action

Learn how your equipment will effect your settings and how you need to adjust your settings according to your environment. Skylines, backgrounds, ambient light and more must all be factored in at times. You will soon know how to identify an appropriate location according to your equipment level that will allow you to produce stunning images in camera.

Strike a pose

Discover my preferred poses when working with a single key light. Helpful lighting diagrams to show you how to position your model and the lights in relation to each other.
