Location Lighting Events with Carla MonacoOldway Gardens, Paignton
Saturday 1st June, 2019from just £55 per person
Photographer Chris Conway will be hosting an off-camera flash workshop and portfolio builder event!
On Saturday June 1st, we'll be spending a full day in the diverse and beautiful gardens of Oldway Mansion in Paignton! There will be both a portfolio builder event and a location lighting workshop run on the same day. Both of these will be hosted by our resident educator, Chris Conway, with our model being the beautiful and versatile Carla Monaco. The content for the portfolio builder and workshop will be different, so we're also offering a £10 discount for anyone that would like to join us on both!
All of the styling on the day will be based around 1960s fashion, with Carla working at clothed levels only.
Weather clause: In the days leading up to the event, if the forecast is for rain then the shoots will be postponed. Cloudy is fine, we can create some moody images - but the studio lights don't like water!
Portfolio Builder (10am-1pm - £55)
This is something that we run regularly at the studio with great success, so now we host them elsewhere! We're steadily returning photographer's faith in this type of event by offering plenty of 1 on 1 shooting time. After we've created each lighting set-up, the 6 attending photographers will all have a few minutes to take shots of Carla on each one. Working at a steady pace, you'll comfortably leave with several hundred high quality images.
Lighting Workshop (2pm-6pm - £80)
These workshops work in the same way as the portfolio builder, but with education thrown in to the mix! We'll start with an informal lesson to go through some essential lighting theory and then move on to creating 5 varied lighting set-ups - putting that theory in to practice by combining different techniques in to each one whilst teaching along the way.
We will mostly focus on using studio lighting outside of the studio and how to balance that flash with the available ambient (daylight) in ways that will satisfy both the technical and non-technical photographers out there! Although we will be using the big studio lighting heads for convenience and speed - the techniques apply to all other flash sources such as speedlites as well.
Both Events (10am-6pm £125)
Join us on the portfolio builder and lighting workshop with discount! There will be an hour lunch break between the events for you (and us!) to catch a breather.
