A Little Experience
I’m about to show you a few images from one of the recent “Model Shoot Experience” events that we ran at Groupon‘s suggestion. The idea was to offer an alternative deal to the amazingly successful 5 hour “Introduction to Digital Photography” courses for the same price. Group studio shoots are always problematic in that we don’t like to have more than 6 participants – this would lead to a lot of standing around waiting, and this being an “experience” I wanted it to be as practical as possible.
Luckily (?), few people went for this deal option anyway so we were able to accommodate everyone on just 2 sessions. I chose Emilie Walt as the model for both, knowing that when a variety of looks within a short period of time was called for, I could always rely on Emilie to transform in seconds. Just as well, this being only a two and half hours workshop.
As ever, once the lighting set-up was changed (by moi), I’d take just a few shots to check the exposure/settings and to demonstrate posing/direction ideas, so these images were taken pretty quickly. Still, quite a range, and the beautiful Emilie never disappoints.
On the whole, these were lovely little shoots, giving (usually) studio novices a gentle and low-pressure introduction to the possibilities of studio lighting with a great model. I’ll probably run a couple more of these in a couple of months so keep an eye on the website.
