Highly Recommended Studio Lighting Workshop

21 08 2010

Last Sunday I attended a workshop that was run by Sydney Photographic Workshops.   I had attended a presentation by Daniel Linnet about a year ago at a camera club and was very impressed with both Daniel’s work as well as Daniel’s ability to communicate his approach, methods etc.  So when I heard about this studio lighting workshop that Daniel was running together with Scott McGale I was keen to give it a try.

While I have messed around with strobist lighting and shot with studio lights a couple of times before, I really felt as though there were some key pieces missing in terms of my theoretical knowledge.   The day with Daniel and Scott was brilliant.   The other course participants were a great bunch and the day was superbly well organised by Daniel’s super-efficient wife Wendy (who is an organisational dynamo and lovely lady).

If any of you would like to really improve your lighting skills (whether it’s in a studio or on location), I would highly recommend this workshop.  If you want to get a good feel for the workshop, then check out this video that I made of the day.

You can find out more information about this workshop here.  Or if you would like to find out more about their other workshops check them out at this link.

Highly recommended

Some Black And White Studio Shooting

15 08 2010

This past week has seen me doing a number of studio shoots in Black and White.  Today I did a fantastic workshop run by Daniel Linnet over at Sydney Photographic Workshops.  The workshop was called Studio Lighting and it was not only a blast, but incredibly insightful.   I’ve admired Daniel’s photography for ages (since I saw one of his presentations at North Sydney Camera Club about a year back).

Anyway today we spent the day in various low key and high key lighting setups and it was a blast.  We worked with a fantastic model called Rev who is quite a character and very photogenic.  I’ve got a great video shot of the workshop that I’ll post later this week when I can edit it up.

Last Monday night I went back into the studio for my second shoot in the Bodyscape series.  This is Desiree.  Last time I shot her arse (which was pretty damn fine), but this time I shot her lovely face as well.

If anybody wants tutorials posted on any of these shots, just holler and I’ll knock one up.
