The into the light workshop is a day of contrasts. I teach the delegates interior boudoir and beauty portraits using continuous light while Martin Hill teaches exterior bridal and fashion portraits using flash. Both groups of delegates shoot all the set ups to ensure they learn a great mix of systems and techniques.
Working with the Lupo was simple and effective as we could all shoot together from different angles and we could see what we were getting all the time. I shot with my Fuji X100 in aperture priority mode and my Canon 5D mk 2 in Manual. This kind of mix and match keeps my brain active. The low key shots taken in the afternoon challenged the ideas and shooting methods the most. Take a look at a few of my frames
Make up was by Vicki Waghorn. I can’t begin to stress how important Vicki is on my team. She is a good friend to the models, a great make up and hair artist and keeps a check on me too.
These shots represent just one half of the one day workshop. Martin’s shots will get blogged soon. I’m excited to see how he got on. We had a great buzz at Kingscotte house and we’d love you to join us on the next ‘Into The Light‘ workshop. You will find a cheeky 11 minute video of me here using a Lupolux light to light a bed scene with the amazing Stina Sanders.
Please feel free to comment on these pictures or discuss the day if you were lucky enough to have been there.
