Workshops

  • On Monday 24th we had a one-day colour workshop, we were divided into groups of four and we had to work in different studios and look for our own models. My group and I had the red coloured paper to work with and were able to find 2 girls from the fashion department to pose for us.

It wasn’t as easy as it looks to get a nice and even background we had to use about 6 lights. 1 problem we faced and that we had 2 honeycombs at the back and they were focusing lighting but we had to diffuse the lights by using umbrellas. We used 2 BX Kit, soft boxes and poly boards.

This workshop helped me understand:

  1. To be more confident in using light meters and the rest of the equipment as the more we do studio based workshops the more I understand, technicalities and other things in the studio.
  2. Understand what needed to be changed in other to adjust any issues with the lighting.
  3. Team-work
  4. Work to deadline
  5. Also, after this workshop I personally think is much easier to shoot on a white or black background than coloured.
  • On Monday 13th March we all went outside to shoot using the Quadra Ranger Kit.

We had to photograph Sky:

  • 28/02/2017

We had a whole day to plan 2 shoots, the first one using high and low lighting. We were all assigned roles and had to plan the whole morning.

This workshop helped me:

  1. Be a little bit more confident in studio
  2. Be more confident in using light meters and the rest of the equipment
  3. Understand what needed to be changed (Shutter Speed, aperture, iso)
  4. Work out of my comfort Zone, as I was appointed as the lighting person and I’m not very good in setting lights and understanding what needs to be changed if it doesn’t work.
  5. Be organised, and work to deadline.
  6. Team-work, although I felt like as soon as we were given roles everyone was doing their own work, without noticing that perhaps other ones were struggling and could have helped even if it wasn’t their roles.
  7. Work with a model, making him/her feel comfortable.
