Bringing Models Into Your Landscapes
Using Off Camera Flash On Location
Next Workshop is February 5th in Sydney.
I’m very excited to announce this new workshop, I’ve been talking to a lot of photographers recently about this workshop and from what I hear there is a lot of interest in this topic. I think this workshop is going to be an absolute blast. Lately I have been evolving my photography from a pure landscape/seascape photographer to include people in my images. I have really enjoyed the fun and the extra dimension that working with models can add to your landscape/seascape/urbanscape photography, so I’m going to share everything I’ve learned in this 1 day intensive workshop.
This will be a full day workshop, by the end of the day you’ll be exhausted, but hopefully you will be well on your way to enjoying the artistic creativity of off camera flash lighting on location. And you should have some pretty good shots to boot.
- I have secured an excellent and highly experienced strobist photographer to instruct alongside me.
- I have secured an awesome makeup artist called Glitta Supernova (she totally rocks).
- We will have two models with us for the day, and they will each be in two outfits/scenes, so that means you’ll be shooting 4 separate setups during the day.
- We will be holding the theory section at the gorgeous facilities of Sun Studios in Alexandria and then spending the rest of the day shooting out on location in the abandoned Dunlop Factory (this is an incredible location with so many possibilities).
This is what the day is looking like (it might change slightly as I finalise the syllabus/workshop materials).
Draft Workshop Agenda
- 8:30am – Arrive at Sun Studios:– Grab a coffee, socialise, talk crap with your fellow photographers
- 9:00am – Theory session 1: We’ll go over all the theory including equipment, settings, flash metering, understanding max synch speeds, balancing flash with ambient, triggering etc.
- 10:30 – Coffee Break
- 10:45 – Theory session 2: We are going to look at light modifiers and demonstrate the differences between brollys, softboxes, beauty dishes etc.
- 11:45 – Travel to location and early lunch
- 12:30 – Location Shoot 1: We’ll be splitting into two groups of 7 and doing our first lighting setups. You’ll all get a chance to direct the model and shoot.
- 1:30 – Location Shoot 2: The groups will swap instructors/models and setup and shoot a second scene.
- 2:30 – Coffee Break and Move to New Scenes
- 3:00 – Location Shoot 3: Similar to the morning sessions, but more complex lighting setups (hint: could be a smoke machine involved)
- 4:00 – Location shoot 4: We’ll swap models and instructors again so that you can shoot your fourth lighting setup of the day
- 5:00 – Wrap and Beer : Talk about the highlights and lowlights of the day and do a bit of decompressing.
I don’t know about you guys, but I reckon this sounds like one great way to spend a day! As per my other workshops, I’m going to be preparing top quality workshop materials for you to take away, and I’m also going to try to negotiate some discounts at the equipment providers for participants. For those of you that have attended my seascape workshop, you know that my goal is to make my workshops the “best you’ve ever been on”. I have a feeling that this one is going to be a cracker!!!
This workshop is going to be capped at 14 participants only so that each group has 7 participants to an instructor, so it will be first come best dressed. If you would like to reserve a place, please drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org The cost for this workshop will be $395 which includes lunch.
