Simon Drew Studio Tutorial
This Thursday (26th Sept) we welcomed Simon Drew to Cramlington CC. Simon runs the ‘Loud & Flashy’ studio in Ashington.
Simon came to Cramlington to give the members a ‘studio tutorial’ using, in the main, a single light system with various diffusers, reflectors and attachments to provide varying lighting styles such as Rembrandt light, to our main model for the evening, our very own Lauren.
Simon commenced the evening with a brief tutorial on the lighting systems he had brought and how they could be best used, positioned and adapted to produce the differing lighting styles popular in portrait photography. Along with recommendations for initial camera settings to obtain the most pleasing exposure.
The members were then invited to try their hand at ‘studio’ photography using the lighting systems and triggering equipment etc that Simon had demonstrated, with Simon always on hand to give help and advice.
With three lighting setups available and members willing to act as models there was no shortage of opportunities for members to experiment and gain practical ‘hands on’ experience of studio shooting.
I’m sure we will see the fruits of the evening in some of the upcoming club competitions.
I’m sure you will join me in thanking Simon for a most enlightening, informative & very enjoyable evening.
Thank you Simon.
Thanks also to Lauren for being our beautiful, professional and patient model for the evening.
