Happy New Year Everyone.  The first studio event for the New Year, and its time to get back to shooting.  For this Friday event we will be running 3 lighting set ups.

1. Head Shots. (Standing and Seated)
Using a single light and for some shots background lights you will be getting some great head shots using modifiers light the 28” beauty dish, 28” Apollo and 60” umbrella.

2. Half/Three Quarter Length.
Moving to half and three quarter length shots we will run a multi light set up of a key light, rim and hair lights. Using some of the larger modifiers to get the coverage required. Posing will become more challenging as we now have hands to deal with, but also don’t forget body weight and stance.

3. Full Length
On to shooting full length for more posing options. Using large light sources such as the 7ft Parabolic Umbrella and 60” Umbrella to light full length poses.

Each set will have approx 50 min of time (to allow for set and outfit changes) so you will have plenty of time to shoot and get the shot for each one.

During this event the key thing is – Photographer to Subject relationship, got to talk, get to know and build up trust to get the great shots.. after all we have the time to.

I am pleased to announce our model for the evening will be Hazel Clarke http://www.purestorm.com/Hazel305
