Off Camera Flash Studio Workshop Feb 8th

As you will know from the club programme, in February (Tuesday 20th) Cliff is organising a practical studio shoot. This will be a great opportunity to bring your cameras and take portraits, from face to full height shoots. The plan is to build three separate sets in the school hall, each with its own lighting.  There will be one or more models at each set.  You can move between sets, connect your camera to the lights and conduct your own shoot. 

Prior to this evening I am offering to run a preliminary studio workshop for any member interested in gaining some experience of a studio shoot before this event.

This preliminary workshop will be on Thursday 8th February at Cople Village Hall, 7pm to 9.40pm.

The evening is open to any member who wishes to learn or refresh the basics of flash photography using both flashguns (AKA speedlights) and studio lights.

His lectures encouraged students to get the most out of very simple gear. His downloadable video training course One Light 2 is affordable and well worth every penny when you want to learn about lighting. He is considered to be one of the best teachers around.
