Friday, 4 March 2011 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM


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



Friday 4th March, from 7.00pm – cost just £6.00.  Numbers limited to 15 photographers.

Our first “Friday Night at the Studio” event will be “Heroes and Villains” – at this event we will have several table top studios set-up showing how to create dramatic images of superhero and super-villain figures.  Some of the techniques will use one flash gun/speedlight (such as the hulk image above) others will involve the use of multiple speedlights.  I will also set up a “painting with light” studio so that you can create images with the figures using those techniques.

Please contact me if you wish to come.
