Here is another batch of the pictures we shot at last weeks Street Fashion workshop in Manchester.
A Broncolor ring flash plugged into my Mobil pack made this simple picture sing. I love the sheen of leather when it's lit with ring flash. This is a head back 'Kate Moss' look.
Another ring flash picture of Laura. You just can't go wrong with great lighting kit and a bit of knowledge.
This picture utilises off camera Speedlight with the sun as a backlight. Creative exposure has ensured a striking image.
Another ring flash gem. The zinc boarding in an old doorway provided the background. There was a splash of sunlight catching Laura's hair from the right that made this shot a bit special.
This shot is simply lit by the sun. I couldn't resist the patterns as the basis for a shot.
One of the delegates caught this shot with the sun, so I had to have a copy myself. I lit this with a silver umbrella on my Mobil flash head. My workshops are a fusion of creativity with each of the delegates sharing ideas and inspiration. We keep the shooting ratio down to 1 model to 4 shooters in order to maximise the learning opportunities.
None of us could resist shooting the 'blue door'. The quality of light makes this set of images special.
This shot was lit with 3 Mobil heads connected to 2 power packs. The RFS Mobil packs are triggered simultaneously if set to the same channels.
Chris has sent me through some more of the shots that he tookon the workshop. Each delegate shoots all the shots that Chris & I shoot and we switch groups every 15 minutes or so to ensure this happens.
A simple flash key and a sunlight kick was all that Chris needed for this shot.
Sunlight does the most wonderful things when it gets broken up by bridges as this shot by Chris shows.
Chris spotted these repeating patterns in the bridge structure and set to work creating an opportunity to use them as a background.
One sure way to stop a lift door closing!
