Every now and then I come across a character asking to be set free and that’s just what we did on this studio lighting workshop. Rohini from Gingersnap model agency is utterly gorgeous and fizzing with verve. I run my one day studio lighting workshops with just three delegates for a maximum learning experience. You’ve probably seen my usual stuff in previous posts so I thought I’d show you a few sequences that make album layout design a breeze. When I’ve set up a lighting rig I want to shoot as many frames as I can that my client will want to buy.
Makeup was by our studio expert Vicki Waghorn.
Shots 2 – 10 and 22 – 37 are all lit with Lupolux Fresnel spotlights. Not a soft light in sight.
Shots 38 and 39 are lit with just one flash head and a simple reflector. Great images can be taken with minimal kit and the right know how. I bought the Bowens Prolite 500 used for these shots way back in 1994. It still sits in the back of my Elinchrom rigged studio.
If you would like to experience a studio lighting workshop with Rohini as our model please do make a request to Blaise. We have regular dates available throughout the year. You don’t need a studio to get the benefit of this workshop. I teach lifetime skills in a non complicated easy to understand way using flash and continuous lighting.
