So here a more detailed recap of the In Camera Lighting workshop that was organised by Anouschka and her husband Ray. They managed to set this whole workshop up in less than two months from initial contact with Zach and Jody to making sure nobody was hungry or thirsty during the workshop. They took care of everything.
We started with the theory behind lighting, different lighting styles, lighting the scene and artificial lighting. Then on to studio strobes, metering and posing tips. We learned all about how to use a light meter and how we can make sure no photograph is waisted (this is really true no photograph waisted!). We then got to the hands on part as the models Stephanie and Angela came to the workshop.
The group was divided into two smaller groups which gave everybody the chance to set up a scene and shoot it and to see all the other attendees set up a scene to learn how to do again and again to make sure it sticks.
When we were en route the temperature was not that bad but as the afternoon went on the temperature seems to drop a couple of degrees. We went from the square near the workshop location to the Binnenhof and as we had big (I mean really big) soft boxes we were also an attraction to all the tourists in the Binnenhof.
So here a number of behind the scenes and result photographs! Never thought I could pull off images like these, showing you how fabulous this workshop has been.
Every one got the chance to set up a location
The softboxes were about to fly away they were that big but look at that light!
These were taken around 15.00 in the afternoon but the drama was created by the light (85mm, F4.5, 1/200, iso100)
Zach was very connected with the Dutch ground. Taking amazing images from this position.
One of my favorites
The amazing red mega heels of Angela.
Shot with my 85mm.
Angela forgot her coat and she was so cold but still managed to look amazing.
All of the images were edited using Zach Lightroom routine and I managed to edit them all (144 images) in less than 10 minutes! Whew what a huge time saver this will become.
