Free "How To" Lighting Demos with Photomart - Photovision Roadshow Kent 21 October 2014

Light Like a Pro

Free How To Lighting Demonstrations

On Tuesday 21st October 2014 I'll be running a series of "how to" lighting demonstrations on the Photomart stand at the Photovision Roadshow in Kent, Brands Hatch Motor Racing Circuit to be precise.

With me I'll have one (maybe more) of the iLux Summit 600 portable battery mono bloc flash heads which is a very useful piece of kit for location photographers, whether you shoot weddings, portraits or events.

Jamie Bannerman stars in Full English Breakfast - I created this image as part of a social media campaign to promote the independent British film. Simple lighting; one studio flash, low and camera  left, with simple barn doors and a LEE Filters cosmetic gel which gave me both tint to the light and slight diffusion. Backdrop was a neutral grey background paper and the distressed Union Flag was composited in place during post-production. Gritty look enhanced with the bleach bypass filter in Nik Color efex Pro 4.

This is a real-world test & evaluation by event photographer Mike Weeks

My provisional schedule:
11:10 - 11:40      Lighting the perfect headshot
12:00 – 12:30     Creative indoor & outdoor portrait lighting 
13:10 – 13:40     Lighting for weddings & events
14:00 – 14:30     Lighting on location
14:50 – 15:20     Lighting to create mood

Our model for the day will be Lulu Cole.

Entry to the show is free/gratis as are the demonstrations, so do come along, all it's going to cost you is a few hours of your time and the fuel. The lovely people at Photomart are offering a £25.00 voucher to all who visit the Photomart stand to offset against any purchase of iLux lighting equipment (minimum spend £150.00).

I've been to these shows a number of times and never leave empty handed, whether it's with new lighting or photo accessories or even better, hints, tips and new knowledge to improve my photography & lighting skills - after all, we never stop learning in this digital age! You may even bump into someone you know online or offline!

You can book you tickets to the show here > > come along, I'm sure you'll not be disappointed.

The show opens from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM (1100 - 1600)
