Thursday 29th Nov - Studio Lighting practical

This Thursday we’ll be dusting off our studio lights to take some pictures of people! We’ve got a number of male and female models coming along (who are all novices). They will be modelling for us based on payment in images, so please be aware i’ll be keeping track of those taking images and chasing you up for images! :)

Please bring along the following if you want to shoot

  • Camera

  • Ideas for poses

  • Speedlight/Flashgun (if you have one, but don’t worry if not)

  • any props which may make for an interesting photograph (e.g. a lantern, a nice umbrella, a fan, hat)

The reason I mention a flashgun is that we have enough studio lighting for two setups, but may have has many as 5 models!

This week at club

This week at club - Studio and Speed Lights

We'll be running two sessions this week at the same time. One session on the new studio equipment the club recently purchased. The other session will take us through the use of speedlights and modifiers. If you attend one session in the first half of the meeting, you can try the other in the second half.

Look forward to seeing you all there

Thursday 05-October-2017 - Studio Lighting technique evening

This Thursday, we will be running a studio lighting technique evening. A demonstration of how to properly light and photograph a model using studio lighting

In the first half of the evening we will demonstrate the use of studio lights to create Loop, Rembrandt and Split lighting.

The second half will expand upon these techniques to introduce kicker lights, background lighting and gels to really complete a professional looking portrait.

Experts in studio lighting will be on hand to answer questions. Where possible we will invite those interested to take a small number of shots themselves using the lighting setups

If you would like to "swot up" on the basic techniques, please take a look at

See you there!
