We had a fantastic group shoot on location at Canonteign Manor on Dartmoor on the 19th November 2016. With 7 Photographers in attendance and a lovely group of models supplied by Mosaic Model Management, we managed to get some top notch photographs from the session.
Here are a few I got on the day. Soon I hope to feature more shots taken by our talented photographers on the blog too. The next session will hopefully be in March or April next year so if you are interested in attending please email me or add your name to the mailing list on the right hand side of this page.
Every so often I am invited to teach people within their home studio environment.
For this session the Photographer, Julia Hobday, asked for some guidance on studio lighting for portraits, we experimented with some low key lighting set ups then played with the colour gels to get some graduated colour on the background.
I invited Hellyn to sit as our subject as she has a very interesting look and makes for a great character portrait.
Here are some of our favourite shots from the session:
Our first light trails workshop was good fun and attendees got some fab shots.
Here are some photographs taken by Shaun Fry who decided to shoot his work entirely in black and white which somewhat simplifies the images. I think they look great! What do you think? We shot with fairly long exposures to capture the light trails, it was mighty cold but good fun. I can't for the next one.
Our next light trail workshop date is on Thursday the 19th of January, more info about these sessions can be found on the Light Trails Workshop info page, dates for workshops can be found on our Photo Workshop Schedule.
Open to all experience levels, you just need to bring a tripod, they are fab workshops for family groups too.
