Does terms like resonance, refractive index, lighting graduations, shadow density, fall-off & Inverse square law make lighting sound very physics'y and technical?
Do you understand key, fill and rim lighting but you get confused when the cool kids throw terms like practical & motivated lighting?
If you've known hard, soft and bounce lighting but terms like chiaroscuro, paramount or book lighting tickle your curiosity?
Would you like to learn how to reproduce EXACT lighting ratios using a light meter?
Or you just wanna play with some shiny new toys like projections and gels?
Well then I'm here to help. My name is Ramanpreet Singh 'Rammy' Sohal and I am addicted to lighting!
I've spent days in lighting workshops, weeks watching online tutorials and months practising it. Guess I've spent Malcolm Gladwell'ian 10000 hours honing this craft and have published 200+editorials in 100+ magazines around the world in the process.
I've spent thousands of $$$ in lighting modifiers in all shapes and sizes, sold some and in some cases bought them back coz I missed them.
My point is, I'm giving you advice not because I'm better than you; it's because I've done far more stupid shit than you and learnt from it...
So if you're intimidated by lighting, struggling with it or just want to refine it further I'd love to guide you.
I offer both 1-on-1 sessions and workshops. Teaching is quite literally in my blood as both my parents are teachers
