The Flash Centre and my beautiful friend Laura. Given that I'll be showcasing my love of Elinchrom lighting I thought I'd better update some of my kit. Hence last Friday saw our local delivery driver staggering up the front path, perspiring heavily under the weight of some very exciting looking parcels.

We'll be putting the Ring Flash to good use on tour with The Flash Centre. I love the look it gives to fashion and glamour shots. Here are a few examples from a recent session with Laura. Come and join us if you'd like to play around with this lighting. http://www.theflashcentre.com/the_john_denton_12_looks_tour.html
Took delivery on Friday of some new Elinchrom kit. Will fully share thoughts in next few days but after a brief play on a 121 yesterday have to say I'm seriously impressed with the ELB's and the 44cm Square Reflector. Can't wait to get these babies out on tour next week around the UK. http://www.theflashcentre.com/the_john_denton_12_looks_tour.html

Sometimes you head off for a shot and see something better on the way. Ever had that experience? We were walking down to the fields on a recent 121 session for a big sky shot with Laura walking through stalks of barley and looking fab. We passed a bush with purple flowers though (I know, I'm no botanist) and knew that would make a fab shot.

It was Laura's introduction to the world of Photovision today and she rocked it. Brands Hatch is a fantastic venue and thanks to everyone who came along. Not much shooting in the session but what we did proved our points and Laura did fantastically well. Next up is our tour with The Flash Centre and Elinchrom. Grab your ticket now if you want to join us.

With the sun shining on Wednesday it was great to be able to use natural light in a range of different ways. In this set the light creeping around the edge of a doorway gave great cross light on Laura that gave superb modelling across her body. A slight breeze gave a lift to the hair at times and the rest was down to pose and attitude.
A three light set up in the studio on Wednesday as investigated a fashion look on a 121 Training Workshop. Beauty Dish as key and Strip box and Umbrella adding fill. Love the consistent quality of light provided by my Elinchrom Quadra Rangers but looking forward to swapping them for the all new ELB's soon. Watch out for a report on those once I start using them in anger!
