In this session, we look at creating glamour images using the studio’s ‘red set’ which consists of a red background, red sofa, and red Venetian blinds.  In this session, you will learn techniques involve creating voyeuristic style images shot through the blind, images of the model looking through the blinds and images where shadows from the blinds are cast on the model.

Although the lighting and set-us are specific to this particular set, the skills (such as how to create shadows through a Venetian blind), are easily transferable to other studio photography shoots.

The session is a practical session and you will have the opportunity to practice these types of lighting by photographing a model.  You will be provided with lighting diagrams for the lighting set-ups taught at this session.  At this event, our model will be working at a range of levels from clothed to nude.

The model for this event will be Dan Infinity (and yes Dan is female – just look at her profile.  There is clearly no doubt! https://purpleport.com/portfolio/daninfinity/?referrer=ianbutty (NSFW)

If you would like to see the types of images we will be creating at this event please look at this gallery:  http://photos.imb.biz/model/genre/redset (Also NSFW).

Suitable for: Anyone wanting to learn how to shoot glamour images in the studio, that are not just a model on a plain paper background.  Your camera must have a standard hot-shoe to accommodate the lighting trigger.  You will need to be able to set your camera to manual mode and select an aperture in the range f/5.6 – f/11.  No prior studio experience is necessary.

A minimum of three photographers booking will be required to run this event.
