Studio lighting demonstration at Wakefield Camera Club
Tonight I gave a studio lighting demonstration to members of Wakefield Camera Club. I usually do these for the photographic club three or four times a year to give the members a chance to have a go at creating some portraits for the portfolio or club competitions. I usually keep the lighting simple, using only a single light source or, at most, two lights. Tonight we used two lights to photograph Sarah, my model for the evening, in order to use an accent light to lift her out of the dark background. You may recognise Sarah from a shoot erlier in the year when she and her fellow performer, Will, booked me to shoot some portfolio images for their website as the Rolling Keys. Sarah is easy to work with which is why I asked if she’d help me out tonight. The shoot went well and the members enjoyed working with Sarah and I’m sure they got some great images.
