Learn the basics of supplementary lighting to photograph objects and subjects. Learners will use studio equipment for hands-on exploration of standard 3-point lighting techniques using key, fill, and background lights. Lighting scenarios will emphasize product photography–accurately and attractively representing a product. Learners can also explore hands-on lighting scenarios for portraiture. Learners who have DSLR cameras should bring them, a loaner camera will be available for use during class.

SLC Arts owns lighting studio equipment which is currently housed at Potsdam Public Library’s Cleveland Computer Center on the basement level of 2 Park Street. This lighting equipment for photography and film was purchased by SLC Arts thanks to the generosity of individual donors and a grant from the Grasseroots Fund.
