Simply Speedlights II, 10th. June 2023 with Laura Siddall at JFYP studio

Now just 1 place remaining

Following a successful first staging of this event and interest exceeding the number of places available we have decided to run the event again. Our model this time will be Laura Siddall (possibly better known to some as the mermaid Luna Tide-Swell)  and once again we will be exploring what different effects we can achieve with simply speedlights and a grey background. You can of course get similar results with other light sources but here the emphasis will be on portability of equipment.

We will aim to produce an “Old Master” painting look, a gel image, pinup style images with different colour backgrounds and some black and white images. Most of the images on the day will be suitable to use as you normally would but with some additional editing in Lightroom and Photoshop you should be able to get images looking similar to those seen below. The editing should be fairly straightforward but to help, anyone attending will have access to an online video afterwards where I talk about some techniques I used to get the looks you see below. I’m not a trained educator but hopefully you will find the video helpful. The event is limited to a maximum of 4 photographers and the cost will be £55 for the event which will be from 11.00 – 14.00 on Saturday June 10th. 2023.
