You don’t have to know anything about studio lighting. This is an intro meant for beginners with such lighting. However, if you bring your own camera to use, be sure you know how to use it in full manual mode and can set ISO, shutter speed, and aperture fluently. Be sure to know your camera’s synch speed. If you wish, you can have the use a full-frame DSLR for the course for an extra fee.
