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



Tonight’s “Friday Night at the Studio” event will again be hosted by Rick Bradbury.  For tonight’s Friday night event it’s time to shoot with 1 two 3 lights. 

I have run a One Light Night twice before at the studio, it was all about the basics of flash exposure. It’s now time to kick it up a gear and shoot starting with 1 light then moving to 2 and finally 3.

I will be on hand to set up some light sets if needed, but the idea is for you to take the bull by the horns so to speak and have at it.  See what different images you can create.

First hour will be shooting with 1 light, any modifier you want, inside or outside the studio (weather permitting).  Experiment with light position, working distance from a background and test your self to see how many different images you can make using this simple setup.  We can get you shooting pretty quick in this set as multiples lights with different modifiers can be set up ready to switch out.

Second hour (with outfit change) will be bringing in a second light. Now you have a key and a fill, or key and background light, Key light & hair light, Key light & rim light.  Experiment & think outside the box.

Third Hour (with outfit change) we will add a third light opening up yet more options.

I want this event to be more about shooting some great images and experimenting with light placement, I will of course be on hand to help or answer any questions you may have.

I can’t wait to see what image you can come up with.

Oh I may need a willing volunteer to help rig lights, just so its keeps things moving fast during the evening.

Our Model for the event will be Strawberry Venom


Price for this great evenings shooting?  £20

The ideal number will be 5 photographers, but if more sign up I will look at arranging a second model.
