Friday, 26 July 2013 – Camera & Subject Movement Night

Camera & Subject Movement Night

Location: Ian’s Studio
Time: 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Price: £22

With Ian unavailable again this week, Rick is still in charge…  Tonight’s event is about creating and showing movement in camera without Photoshop. We will be using both tungsten continuous lights and flash for this along with camera or subject movement with a view to creating ghosting in camera.

The results will be different every shot so it’s great fun experimenting with this technique. Along with basic camera or subject movement we will use lens zoom to create an interesting effect.

You may want to bring a tripod for some set ups where the camera needs to be locked in.

Other things you can bring are:

  • Torches – More powerful ones are better generally.
  • Other types of lights.

We will have use of modelling lights and hot lights at the studio.

Our model for this event will be Saba Sadik, her profile can be seen on Purestorm:  http://www.purestorm.com/profile.aspx?id=Saba

Price: £22

Friday, 2 August 2013 – Creative Glamour

Creative Glamour

Location: Ian’s Studio
Time: 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Price: £29

Glamour is probably the most difficult photographic genre to define, and the boundary between glamour nude and art nude is fuzzy to say the least.  In tonight’s event let’s challenge our perceptions of what is glamour and take a more creative approach.

We will look at how revealing less can add more to a glamour image.  Although our model will be working to glamour nude levels we will use lighting techniques and/or props to hide, reveal and to tease.

Details of our model for this event will be published shortly

Price £29

Please book via my website: http://www.ians-studio.co.uk/events/creative-glamour/

Saturday, 3 August 2013 – Food Fights and Messy Girls

Food Fights and Messy Girls

Location: Ian’s Studio
Time: 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Price: £95

This event is designed to be a fun event and is intended for photographers and videographers who enjoy messy shoots.  Throughout the day we will be working with two models to capture a number of messy setups such as food fights and circus style foam fights.

Details of the models for this event will be published shortly.  Both models will be working from clothed to nude for this shoot.

Lunch and printed notes about messy photoshoots in general are included in the price for this event.

The images we will create at this event will be mostly a fun glamour style and but there will also be some opportunity to create images with a more messy fetish (sploshing) aspect to them.  For those stills photographers who are more interested in creating messy art nude images I will be rerunning my popular messy art nude workshop later in the year.

Please note: While care will be taken to try to ensure that those attending the event do not get messy, you should be aware that we are working with messy substances such as paint and food substance which may stain.  Wearing old clothes is advised.

A minimum of three photographers booking is required for this event to take place.

A deposit of £30 is required to reserve a place.

Price: £95

Please book via my website: http://www.ians-studio.co.uk/events/food-fights-and-messy-girls/

Friday, 9 August 2013 – Table Top Night: Commercial

Table Top Night: Commercial

Location: Ian’s Studio
Time: 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Price: £15

Another is our ad-hoc series of table-top event.  The theme this time will be commercial photography and we will be looking a different ways to shoot interesting product shots.

As ever for the table top nights bring your tripod (although I do have ones you can borrow), if you have macro lenses or extension tubes please bring those too (I have canon versions that people can borrow).

Some of the techniques are all done in camera but other techniques, such as the image on the eFlyer use a small amount of photoshop/post-production work.  For those who want to see the photoshop techniques I use, I will spend a short while at the end of the event (10pm till about 10:45pm) demonstrating how I process and combine images together.

Price £15

Please book via my website: http://www.ians-studio.co.uk/events/table-top-night-commercial/
