This month we will get feedback from those members who attended masterclasses Northern Zone Convention which were run by professional photographers. We will share our experiences and ideas and discuss new techniques for future HPG workshops. John Shaw for example will discuss the Polarized Ice Photography masterclass he attended, and I watched a particularly well run portrait workshop using soft lights and I look forward to getting feedback from other HPG members who attended these and other masterclasses.
This will be followed by a session on candlelight portraiture. This will be a hands-on workshop and members should bring their camera, tripod, their fastest lens and a remote control device, if they have one. Please bring a friend or relative to be a ‘model’ for the session and to join in the fun. The August set subject is indoor portraits with the sole use of a candle/s, direct candlelight, reflected, back-light or a combination of all or some of these techniques, so this will be a great opportunity to learn some new techniques.
If you are not an HPG member and you would to know what we do, please come along, you will be welcome. You might wish to contact us, please click on ‘Reply’ see below.
