EVENT NOW FULLY BOOKED (despite what it may say here!)
NO MORE BOOKINGS THROUGH EB PLEASE!
We will be shooting lifestyle and fashion with stunning full-time professional model Elle Beth on the streets of central Manchester on Wed 19th November.
Learn about on-location lighting, with particular reference to shooting with the Fujifilm cameras as we shoot through the day. The aim is to shoot on the street, but if it rains heavily then we will be shooting indoors at a backup location.
I will be going over camera settings for your Fuji X-Series, how to get the best out of them and about how I use off-camera flash to light on-location for both subtle and dramatic effect. Turning day into night, the use of modifiers etc.
We would be shooting using a Profoto B1 flash mainly and maybe some speedlights, but simple and lightweight setups for one person to be able to do on their own.
The event is mainly aimed at Fujifilm X-Series camera shooters, although you are welcome to join us with any camera you wish, but to get the best out of the day I would recommend you shoot with a Fujifilm camera. If you don't have one then I have a good selection of Fujifilm cameras and lenses you could try out and should be able to loan other kit from Fujifilm for the day if there is anything in particular you wanted to try.
We will also have the new twin-speedlight Gemini umbrella bracket from Damien Lovegrove and the Orbis Ringflash from Enlight Photo to try out.
We will have four hours shooting with Elle from 14:00 to 18:00, but will meet before then to run through camera settings, and some basic lighting tips before we go out shooting. Afterwards we will have a debrief and an informal chat with a chance to show off any images you want.
I am a commercial photographer based in the North West and offical Fujifilm X-Photographer. You can see a selection of my images at memaddock.co.uk.
There will be a maximum number of 6 attendees so you will have plenty of opportunity to get your own shots.
