Studio Workshop Update

Studio Workshop Update

On Sunday 12th May 2013, I attended a one-day studio workshop which I helped to organise for the Digital Imaging Eastern Centre of the RPS.  The speaker was the renowned MaxOperandi (AKA Ian Parry); we had two lovely models for the day, Raffy and Amber with two separate studio setups so that the small group of photographers had plenty of time with each model.   One setup included a large white infinity screen for fine-art nude photography the other was configured as a portrait studio with a stool and various backdrops, my favourite being a speckled dark grey.  The equipment comprised several Bowen flash-heads, radio triggers and various lighting modifiers.
