Things are progressing well with the dance photography workshop and I am happy to announce that it is provisionally set for the 1st of July 2012 – a Sunday. The venue is the Big White Space in Bradford (http://www.thebigwhitespace.com/) – as the name suggests this is a large room with a number of shooting options – there is a large infinity cove, a green screen and some lovely gritty brick walls – all great for dance photography.
We will be using all my lighting gear – largely Elinchrom stuff both Ranger’s and Quadras with a variety of light modifiers. Depending on your needs I can also do speedlites. If you have gear that you wish to bring along please feel free – however all you will need is a camera that can work in manual mode with a hotshoe. I will provide the triggers for the flashes.
We will have two models/dancers and a session on workflow.
What I hope you will get from this dance photography workshop:
- Familiarisation with using a studio and manual flash
- Understanding of light and use of modifiers
- Appreciation of working with models including posing
- Practicalities of model shoots including preplanning, moodboards and model releases
- Opportunity to start/add to your portfolio
- Post shoot workflow techniques centred around Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop (not elements)
- Meet like minded folk
- Have fun!
I envisage that initially there will be some teaching and opportunity to see how I go about dance photography, then students will pair up and take turns shooting, while the third pair have some workflow training.
The workshop will last from 1000-1600 – there are a couple of sandwich shops very close – soft drinks will be provided.
The price? £125 – and I will be providing receipts – all above board and tax man friendly
I have a good number more folk than the 6 student places available so please let me know asap if you wish to book a place.
There will be a booking fee of 50% to secure a place – full balance to be paid on the day. Details of paypal to follow when you make your booking.
Lastly I hope to be able to accommodate multiple levels of experience – but can only do this if you let me know what you need – so let me know
