Fellow photographers,

In the newsletter, I want to do two things… let you know about some changes of dates for events and give a quick plug to the two events that Rick Bradbury will be leading at the studio over the next two weeks.

Read on…..

Date Changed….
SUNDAY 26th June – Wedding Photography Workshop

Sunday 26th June – Introduction to Wedding Photography Workshop
Time 10.00am till 4.00pm

We have moved this event from the Saturday to the Sunday for a number of reasons including to avoid clashes with weddings!  ;-)

At some point all photographers get asked to photography a wedding – even if it is on an informal basis just as a favour for a friend.  While taking the photographs is relatively straightforward what scares most photographers is the fact that you have limited time and only have one chance at a wedding.  In this workshop we give special emphasis on the ‘stage management’ role that a wedding photographer has to assume.  We look at the planning side, and how to make sure things run smoothly from a photographic perspective.  We conclude the workshop with the chance to photograph a bride and groom models.

Cost £69 (Includes lunch and notes)

Date Changed….
Saturday 9th July – Lightroom Day

Lightroom Splash Screen10.00am till 4.00pm at Ian’s Studio.

Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 in one day. This intensive and extensive training day will equip you to get the best out Lightroom and will help you streamline your photography workflow.

Attendees may wish to be bring a laptop with with Lightroom 3 installed, to follow the through the training on their own screens.

All participants will get printed notes.

Date Changed….Saturday 16th July – Art Nude Workshop

NOTE: The date of this workshop has changed to 16th July

At this workshop I will demonstrate a number of art nude set-ups.  There will be printed notes detailing the lighting set-ups being used.

The day will be suitable for those who are a little unsure about where to start with art nude photography; but time will be built into the day to enable more experienced photographers to build on these set-ups.

I will be booking an established female art-nude model who will be working with us through out the day.  I hope to also book a male art-nude model for the afternoon session.  Subject to both models being willing we will finish the afternoon session by looking at some set-up incorporating both modes.

There will be opportunities to create high-key (white background) images, low-key (black background) images and bodyscape images.  A large selection of props will be available to enhance the images and to help inspire you with ideas.

Cost £82 per person (this includes lunch and printed notes).

10 June – All White on the Night

Copyright RJ Bradbury – Image used with Permission.

At this “Friday Night at the Studio” session, Rick will be leading a hi-key studio night.  Learn different techniques for working with white background, how to light background and subject correctly and try your hand at other techniques.

Hi Everyone,

For this event we will cover how to set up a pure clean white background/seamless, this gives you a clean background so the image can be just about the subject/person.

To do this we will be using a 3 light set up both withstudio strobes and speedlites.  Whilst this wont be as in depth as the One Light Night event(which will hopefully be re run in the future) I want you to leave having learnt / tried something new.

There will be plenty of shooting time. On the Night we will have  1-2 models depending on numbers booked. Details of model(s) to follow.

See you soon.

Cost £20 – To book your place on this event please email Rick directly at rick@ians-studio.co.uk
