Working with a flash installation in a professional photo studio is quite different from shooting in natural light. Daylight is absolutely not constant and changes throughout the day. In a studio you work with studio flashes and you need lighting for that. You need lighting that is separate from the viewer. To set this up as well as possible, you still need a professional background. Thanks to the training courses of the Center for Evening Education and the Center for Distance Education, you will acquire the right knowledge and basis you need! - employerSpeaks

Studio photography


These days, flash light is very mainstream: harsh, unflattering lighting effects are popular. Such amateurish-looking light gives every image a certain edge, as if it were taken at four in the morning after a long night of partying. Often the photos are actually constructed to get the effect. Another consequence of social media: photos are more and more combined with each other in diptychs, triptychs or real collages. You will notice this trend both online and in print.

Developments in photography are going very fast. How do we photograph in 10 years? Which cameras do we use then? Many new types of cameras are already on the market! Drones are getting better and cheaper. They have been available to the general public for a while. But while they used to be quite expensive, now they are much more affordable and of better quality. As a professional photographer, it is certainly worthwhile to delve into drones, so that you can take beautiful images from the air.

I have been involved in photography myself for several years, but I was not always satisfied with the result. I started looking for a suitable education to improve my skills as a photographer. That's how I ended up at the Center for Distance Education. I had the opportunity to study at home, cheaply and the right certificate as the end result. In the meantime I have set up my own photo studio. The training was really the stepping stone to a new career! - exStudentSpeaking

  • Did you know that over 90% of the world's creative professionals use Adobe Photoshop?
  • The first digital camera was invented in 1975 by Steven Sasson. The camera weighed 3.6 kilograms and took 0.01 megapixel photos.
  • There was almost never any laughter in old photos. That's because the photos sometimes took several hours to take and the people in the photos had to sit still for so long.
  • The first so-called photo was taken in 1826 and took about 8 hours.
  • Did you know that a studio light is deeper than that of a camera? This gives you a more natural result. & Nbsp;
