What can I say ! a great night was had by all. We set up three Mini studio's and set to work taking pictures.
All our "Models" Lydia Michelson, Louise Brown, Emily King, Megan Campbell and her mum Steph Clough and
"Scotswood Slim" aka Brian Lynam. all took part for the first time. I think you will all agree they did a great job for us. The girls brought along a couple of their favourite Disney outfits and the club provided a few more props including a variety of hats, a vintage trumpet and an electric guitar.
The members got to work taking pictures with fixed flash set ups and some sets of speed lights on triggers. Lydia posed with a variety of props from Chinese umbrella and electric guitar to a purple hat "as mother of the bride". Emily, Louise and Megan all took turns in the various sets. One of the great things I enjoy about these nights is the way members get together to share ideas to help and inform others in the use of their camera and techniques. A wealth of knowledge was shared last night, from how "not" to use a smoke machine to simple composition of the shot.
Everyone I spoke to gave me a big thumbs up and said how keen to do it all again.
Well done to our models and all the members who turned up.
A great night.
The smoke machine proved a challenge!
