Portrait Photography Lighting Workshop

There are few places available on my Portrait Lighting for Beginners workshop this Saturday, 8th January at Park Cameras in Burgess Hill, West Sussex, England.

Beautiful portraits outside using an off camera Speedlite and softbox

If you live outside of the area and need to travel the day before, there is now a Premier Inn within a short walk from the Park Cameras showroom and training centre, both are located within easy reach of the M23 and M25 between Brighton on the south coast and Gatwick Airport. Both the Premier Inn and Park Cameras have plenty of free parking. Burgess Hill is also served by a regular train service from London, Brighton and Gatwick Airport.

This workshop is totally practical and led by the requirements of the participants. We will be covering studio lighting with Speedlites both inside and out (weather permitting). Studio lights will be available but for the last few workshops the participants have wanted me to demonstrate portrait lighting using off camera hot shoe flash.

During my last Portrait Lighting for Beginners in November we worked with one, two and three Speedlites in a studio setting working with dark and light backgrounds and the outside where I demonstrated use of a single Speedlite with a softbox balanced with available light.

All participants at this workshop will be given a copy of my Crash Course in Portrait Photography which contains all sorts of useful hints and tips together with a series of grids showing the effects of different studio light modifiers on the model - this is only available to my workshop participants.

After the last workshop I even produced a post workshop handout which I emailed to all participants with my shots from the day, my thoughts about the images, how and why we did things a certain way and breakdown shots showing the effect of individual lights in multiple light designs.
