In April I ran another one of my popular small group Studio Lighting Workshops and the four photographers really enjoyed the day – or at least that’s what they told me! Joceline Brooke-Hamilton was on hand to take care of the modelling skills which she always does with aplomb.
We ran through a number of different lighting setups, styles and techniques throughout the course of the day which included:
Single light setups
- Hard light
- Soft light
- Constant light with fresnel lens
- Studio Flash light
- Use of reflectors
- Flags and bounces
Two light setups
- Indirect bounced light
- Black bounces
- Strip softboxes with egg box grids
Three light setups
- Using coloured gels
I always undertake a number of review sessions throughout the day so we all get a change to look at our own work on a large screen, plus it’s a chance to look at each others. Most often we learn as much during the review sessions as we do whilst shooting, it’s also great opportunity to see how different we all are. It never ceases to surprise me that each person comes away with a different shot from what is an identical setup – creativity at its best!
Anyway, I’m sure you want to look at the images! Below are the images submitted by the delegates and I’m sure you’ll agree there are a wide range of styles and personal creativity in all the images supplied.
