Photography Workshop - Studio Lighting: Flowers and Found Objects

Find new photographic inspiration with Leanne Hansen and Stuart Schwartz in their third studio lighting photography workshop collaboration!

This still life studio lighting photography workshop will give you the chance to slow down and study the ways that light creates dimension, shape, and texture. We will work with a variety of studio lighting techniques and configurations, including broad, soft window light and continuous studio lighting for dramatic effects. Each workshop participant will have their own table top to use for composition and lighting practice throughout the day.

Photography techniques covered will include macro photography, balancing composition, selective focus, choosing backgrounds for simplicity and mood, the importance of point of view, and more.

Bring your own subjects—flowers and objects with interesting shapes and textures—or work with a variety of natural and man-made forms provided at the workshop.

Our workshop includes an introduction and brief history of still life photography prior to getting into the hands-on part of the workshop, a full day of shooting in the studio,  and an evening critique session after the day in the studio. Also included is a 15-minute session with Stuart to work on your digital files and four 11×17 prints on Epson Premium Luster paper to be used in the critique.


Registration is required. Workshop fee is $425.
