Friday, 2 March 2018 until 2 March 2018 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM


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

In this session, we will look at different ways to photograph male subjects.  We will look at lighting for a formal/business portrait/headshot and how to create dramatic portraits such as those that enhance muscle tone.  The session will include general advice on posing male subjects.  We will be working with the following lighting set-ups

  • Key light, gridded rim light, optional fill light and gridded background light on grey background
  • Light across the body (with optional rim light)
  • Key light with two rim lights

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.

Suitable for: Anyone wanting to learn how to shoot images of men.  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.

I am pleased to announce that the model for this event will be Nicky – https://purpleport.com/portfolio/mrnpr/?referrer=ianbutty
