Tonight I hosted the first group portrait night at the studio using Maddy as the model. The evening was fully booked and I hope the delegates got both enjoyment and some good images from the evening. Maddy is such a natural in front of the camera and is very easy going so she makes the ideal model for those who are less experienced at shooting people as she requires little direction. It’s actually quite daunting to stand in front of someone on a one to one basis and take photographs and for me, the key to its success lies in communicating with your subject and building a rapport. Putting the model at ease is the key ingredient in getting the shots. As host, I didn’t take any shots but was simply on hand to advise, offer suggestions and tips and make coffee! I took three test shots just to ensure everything was well and here’s one of them. Proof, if proof were needed, that it is impossible not to get a great shot of Maddy!
