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



This event will again be hosted and led by Rick Bradbury.  At it we will be looking at and working with shadows but not just shadows on our subject.  We will be looking at making abstract images, photographing shadows and shapes both with and with out a subject in frame, as well as using shadows to create interesting patterns on the background and may be even fool the images viewer.

Rick Writes…..

Shadows are an important aspect of any photograph as they create depth and shape in what is a 2 dimensional image. They can also create mood, but they have to be delivered well and made part of the composition like in the image above.

You will be shooting allot and have free run to experiment with light placement and shadow placement as well as creating interesting backgrounds using shadows of objects, props or a person or two.

What you will need:

  • Camera and Kit lens
  • Memory Cards
  • Anything that can have a light fired at it to create a pattern / shadow on the background.  I will bring a few items but feel free to bring what you have.

Cost £20 per photographer.

If possible please bring correct money as it’s easier to deal with and also pay the model that way.

The model for this event will be Bex Lendon: http://www.modelmayhem.com/1400463#

I look forward to working with you and seeing the result you create on the night.
