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



In tonight’s session we are going to look at how to create images using light stencils.  In addition to a short tutorial on how to create your own stencils we will work inside and possibly outside the studio to create some weird and wonderful images images by combining simple strobist techniques with light stencils.

Here’s the images I am planning…

Geeky girl with with game controller surrounded by space invaders in front and behind her floating in the air. Goth surrounded by light bats.  Hippy chick with butterflies and flowers made of light.  And all these will be done in camera!!

You will need to bring with you.  A tripod… we will be doing long exposures.  One or more speedlights.

If you can also bring one or more shoe boxes with lids, kitchen foil, and a craft knife it will help.  If you don’t have any of those don’t panic I will have supplies and things you can borrow.  If you bring your own shoe box you can take your full light stencil away with you at the end of the evening.  Without it you will be able to take away the stencil but not the box to use with (I only have a limited number of she boxes!)

Helping us with this event as our model will be studio regular Sarah Hobart.
