The occasion was my second boudoir workshop at Old Down Manor in Gloucestershire. The brief I set for the event was to shoot with either natural light or one artificial light source. I had a Speedlight with a Lastolite Ezybox and a Lupolux DayLED 1000 Fresnel spotlight to make this shoot come alive.Make up and hair was by Vicki Waghorn
Styling was by Elle Richie
Elle was cast by the Gingersnap Model agency in Bristol
My first session was lit with the light from one window ant a bit of spill coming through open doors. I taught my group how to find and use the light that surrounded us.
Great light doesn’t always come in vast quantities and a fast prime lens gave me the opportunity to capture these shots hand held. Simply using a 24 – 105 f/4 zoom would need a shutter speed of 1/4 second or an increase in ISO to 12800.
My next Boudoir workshop is yet to be scheduled but I’ve a mind to call it Curvy Boudoir and feature a curvy size 14 or 16 model. If you would like to be a part of that workshop please Email Blaise stating Curvy Boudoir. Alternatively if you want to shoot with Elle Richie and myself please email Blaise too and let her know your preference. We can shoot Femme Fatale, Into The light, or Boudoir. You don’t have to be a professional photographer to be a part of these photography workshops. We have many keen amateurs from all walks of life and all countries too.
Why not get a few friends together and book us to arrange your shoot/ workshop experience. You can exchange a few pictures, create a genre and then we can provide a great choice of suitable models. We have access to some fantastic locations and I have the lighting kit to bring your shots alive. Why not stay over and make an evening of it too? Sharing the cost makes so much sense. Blaise is the near super human resource we have at Lovegrove Training to make your wishes become a reality.
