Visiting artist: Jake Hicks - gelled flash workshop

Jake Hicks
Jake’s work is predominantly known for it’s bold use of colour and movement. One of the reasons this workshop has become so popular over the years is because that colour and saturation is all created in-camera with coloured lighting alone.

So if you’re looking to add something a little different to your arsenal of lighting skills, or maybe you’re simply looking to shoor something a little more engaging and adventurous, this could be the lighting workshop for you.

Here are just some of the topics Jake will be covering on the day:

  • Subjective lighting: Let go of some of the rules of traditional lighting to create bold statements with colour.
  • Essential lighting techniques to consider when using coloured gels: Creating saturated and bold colours as well as how to create softer subtler coloured looks with equipment you already have.
  • The fundamentals of colour theory: Why colour theory is so important and how powerful it can be when used properly. How to apply colour theory with not only the lighting but with what your client or subject is wearing and the environment you’re in.
  • Learning how to fully control and manipulate light with advanced setups: We’ll be in a fully equipped studio but we will also look at how we can reproduce these looks in far smaller studio spaces like home studios with limited kit.

Everybody will get a chance to shoot on each of the set-ups and everybody will walk away from the day with plenty of killer shots.
What do I need to bring?

  • You should need on the day is a DSLR or MLC with a portrait lens; anything from 50mm to 105mm will be fine. It helps if you are familiar with full manual mode.
  • Bring your own lunch and snacks to keep you powered up.

What’s included with the price of the workshop?
A full days face to face training with Jake plus plenty hands on shooting time on each of the three lighting setups with our top model guaranteeing you some fantastic portfolio images.
