Hi, I'm Rebecca Guenther with and I'm going to talk to you about studio lighting techniques. When it comes to studio photography you're generally going to be shooting table top which is products, which can be anything from, you know, actual products to food to something small to even sometimes some art pieces are small enough they can be shot on table top. You can also be shooting portraiture with, you know, either a backdrop like this one, which is just a seamless piece of paper or a canvas backdrop for some portraits or even fashion. If you have a big enough studio, you can decorate so that it looks like a home or a restaurant or really any kind of setting. You're really only limited in studio photography by how large your studio is. For example, some studios are large enough that they can drive a vehicle in and photograph a vehicle inside of the studio. Chances are your studio is not that big. Maybe you can only shoot table top or maybe only portraiture. The lighting that you're going to use in studio generally will not be natural lighting or daylight lighting. Usually you're going to be using strobes or hot lights. And which one you use is going to depend on what your needs are. You're going to want to keep in mind that the lighting is going to define what the image looks like in the end. So, you want to move the lights around. Figure out what looks good and what exactly you want your final result to be. And that's studio photography lighting techniques.
