Welcome to LONDON PHOTOGRAPHIC WORKSHOPS - It is an exciting time in photography and visual media. Billions of images are being made daily in fact, in a minute or two as many photographs are produced as were made in the entire 19th century. At LPW we teach traditional ways of making photographs, with film, and we also teach new and exciting ways of using digital imaging. Exploring the enormous possibilities in visual imaging.
Ours workshops and courses programs are helping them get there.The old rules of the photographic industry are changing constantly. A new wave of talents is emerging, committed to doing things differently, freely. They don't feel themselves constrained by any medium. They have the power to create wherever they are. To be their own brand and to build their own future.
ALL THE EXPERIENCE OF HUNDREDS OF WORKSHOPS CONDENSED IN FIVE GREAT BOOKs
Once you develop a taste for indoor photography it is only a matter of time before you will want your own studio lighting setup. A studio setup can be anything from a few table lamps, and a spare sheet for the background, to an elaborate multi flash system.
Whether you want to get more serious about professional studio photography or you want to expand your current lighting setup, this book is meant to give you an introduction to the different types of basic lighting equipment.

The nude is a difficult subject to light. This book gives ideas on lighting nude and semi-nude figures, based on successful examples.
The pictures in Lighting for Nude Photography are both beautiful and inspiring, covering full nude and semi-nude erotica, working from natural light and simple light setups, to complex multi-light arrangements. The accompanying diagrams provide a starting point for readers to experiment with their own photography.

Good studio lighting tutorials are surprisingly hard to come by. I’m sure loads of you are ready to to agree with me. There is an abundance of education out there for learning Lightroom, Photoshop, and basic studio technique, but relatively little when it comes to advanced lighting tutorials. In actual fact, much of it is poorly produced, badly taught, and, on the rare occasion, just downright wrong. That’s why I thought would be very useful to create a book finalized to explain high-end studio lighting solutions.
