At this session, we will look at different ways to photograph couples. The session will include advice on how to pose couples and the following lighting set-ups
- Single large umbrella
- High key lighting with a blown-out white background
- 2 softboxes and 2 gridded rim lights on black background
- Key, fill and 2 gridded rim lights on grey background
The session is a practical session and you will have the opportunity to practice these types of lighting by photographing two models. You will be provided with lighting diagrams for the lighting set-ups taught at this session.
The models for this event will be real-life couple Rahel and Ciaron – both are experienced models and actors. I have worked with Rahel on a number of occasions in the past and I am delighted that she has agreed to model for this event. You can find their portfolios on purpleport: https://purpleport.com/portfolio/rahel/?referrer=ianbutty and https://purpleport.com/portfolio/bard/?referrer=ianbutty
Suitable for: Anyone wanting to learn to shoot headshot portraits in a studio. Your camera must have a standard hot-shoe (with the middle pin) 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.
