Ian's Studio, Woodbank Works, Turncroft Lane, Stockport, Cheshire, SK1 4AR

“Friday Night at the Studio” events are returning to Ian’s Studio.  If you have never been to one of these events before this is the chance for you to come along and find out they are all about.  If you used to come along, this is a chance to be in at the start of their revival.

“Friday Night at the Studio” events are flexible learning sessions.  Each event has a theme to it, and you will have the chance to learn techniques associated with that theme.  The sessions are let by Ian who ensures everyone gets their fair share of time shooting.  If you have particular techniques or ideas you wish to try, providing they are in keeping with the theme, we will do our best to accommodate them.  If no one has any ideas Ian will set you going with a few suggestions that will help spark your own ideas.

For this taster session we will have four different themes for the evening:

  • Film noir portraits
  • Pin-up
  • Silhouettes
  • Bodyscapes

Additionally, we hope to set-up a table studio in the office, for those who want to have a go at some macro photography.

I am pleased to announce that the model for this event will Ahsatan (aka Tasha) – http://purpleport.com/portfolio/ahsatan/?referrer=ianbutty (Tasha’s portfolio on Purpleport is only visible if you are logged in).

Tasha will be working to nude levels for part of the silhouettes section and for the bodyscapes section of the event.

As an added bonus for this event, I will be also be giving attendees copies of the lighting sheets/lighting diagrams for each of the set-ups we are working with.

A minimum of three photographers are required for the event to go ahead.  (Maximum number will seven)
