Clamshell Lighting

If you're a member of the Societies, if not why not? Then you'll get a copy of Professional Imagemaker in December with some ideas on Clamshell lighting in an article by me. Here are some I took on a 1 2 1 workshop with Kat as our model. If the article inspires you, send yours in.

More after the break.

It's a light that some love, some hate.

I'm a big fan and love to use my Elinchrom Eco Quadra Unit whenever I can. 
This set up was incredibly simple, a tiled wall and the flash attached to the camera to give front on, classic ringflash look.

Something from the 60's

We hit the road at the start of the week. This time Kerry and I went down to visit our friends at Click Props in Watford. It was a one day workshop in which we covered a range of natural light and flash lit images in a range of styles from nudes to fashion.

Natural Light and Kat

On my last 1 2 1 at the studio we had a lot of fun working with natural light and reflectors. Click on the jump to see some of the images we took.

We're going to Las Vegas!

Ever since I first got into the teaching of photography I've wanted to go to the WPPI show in Las Vegas. http://www.wppionline.com/show/classes.shtml

It's a massive event and one of the biggest platforms to speak on in the world.

Delighted then that I've been invited to go over in 2015 to present a PhotoWalk and do some judging. I know there are a few people coming over from the UK too, look forward to seeing you over there and sharing some good times.

Small matter of a few 121's , The Societies Convention and a few workshops to come before then though, always lots going on at Denton HQ.

Kat on a 121

Sundays 1 2 1 training was actually a 1 2 2 as husband and wife team Tracey and Lee joined Kat and I at the studio. We covered a lot of ground and finished with this three light and reflector set up.

Background by Click Props.

One last place available on a workshop at Click HQ in Watford on Monday. If you want it email them directly tania@cccuk.co and see you there.
