Back to basics 23 June

Most of my recent workshops have demonstrated how to set up some quite complex shoots to give you the chance to try something you’d otherwise not be able to.  Now I want to demonstrate a style that’s repeatable on most budgets.

We’ll be working mostly with natural light, supplementedwhere required with speedlights and a brolly and gels.  The style of images will be similar to my recent Marilyn shoot that you can see here -

The model for the day will be Ashley-Jade who was my model for the Marilyn shoot.  I’ve worked with Ashley for many years, she’s a very expressive model and a pleasure to work with.

You’ll have the opportunity to work with Ashley 1:1 to take your own images.  I’ll be shooting mostly with wide aperture prime lenses and to get similar images on full frame anything from 135mm – 200mm f2.8 and wider would be ideal.  That said, especially with crop sensors, you’ll be fine with a ‘nifty fifty’ but avoid wide angle lenses and slow kit zooms

Following on from this I’ll take you through my basic workflow.  I’m a long term user of Phase One Capture One and that is still my primary RAW converter but lately I’ve also been impressed with Lightroom 4 and I’ll use both together with my plugin of choice ‘Alien Skin Exposure’.

Places for this workshop are limited to a maximum of 6 and it will take place on the 23rd of June from 11am at Hallam Mill in Stockport.  Please use this link to book your place
