2-Day Studio Photography Course


The New York Film Academy (NYFA) offers an intensive weekend of photography workshops in Kazakhstan for visual arts students interested in learning hands-on skills in photography and fashion photography.

2-Day Studio Photography Course

In this intensive, two-day, hands-on studio workshop, the New York Film Academy introduces students to the essential elements of studio photography. Working with Profoto equipment and led by New York Film Academy NY Photography Chair David Mager, students will explore the basics of studio lighting as they gain practical experience creating visual libraries to identify light modification through in-class assignments. Students will learn the principles of light so they can apply their knowledge to any shoot environment, they will also explore creative portrait lighting. This will help students use light to tell a story, create mood, and pre-visualize their shoot before it ever happens.
