For those just starting out and those who want to consolidate their skills....
Saturday, 26 November 2011 , 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Location: Ian's Studio
In this workshop we look at a number of simple studio lighting techniques starting with zero lights (using only window light) up to using four lights. We also look at some basic techniques for posing subjects and for working with models.
We will look at how different light modifiers such as umbrellas, softboxes, snoots, grids and gels can be used. There will be time during the day for you to practise these techniques with the help of a professional model. We will cover basic posing techniques which are suitable for photographing friends, family, customers or even models. We will also look at the biggest cheat of all for posing people in the studio – the use of props.
Printed notes to document the techniques we will look at during the day will be provided and a buffet lunch is included in the price of the event. Numbers will be limited to 6 photographers and we will have a professional models as our subject.
