Despite having just had an impacted wisdom tooth out and really not feeling on top of my game, I headed off to Halifax Photographic Society to give them a studio light workshop using a single light source. As ever, Laura came along as model for the night – I’m sure she could give the demo these days, she’s heard me spout on enough times :¬) We covered the basics of studio lighting and the differences between various light modifiers before setting up the lights and photographing Laura. I used a large softbox and a reflector to create some high key beauty lighting and also showed them how a single light can be feathered to give some moody shoots that look good as black and white images. Here are just a couple that I shot prior to the members shooting Laura.
