Flashgun Photography Workshop on 30th January 2016, images, tips and insigths

We did it again, we ran another flashgun photography workshop, and despite the cold weather we finished the day with lots of beautiful images, and more important, we learnt a great deal of flashgun photography.

The natural light was not bad either so we started as usual taking some test images for a later comparison, see images at the end of the post natural versus speedlite / flashgun.

Again, we decided that the flashgun / speedlite is one of the most powerful tools in the photographer’s bag, particularly when you’re on location, and not only. Our model on the day Jessica Cleary was again a great subject to photograph. Jess is one of our favourite models and she poses for our students in many of our photography workshops.

So, the first test from our Flashgun Photography Workshop on location was: natural light (first image) one speedlite (second image) and 2 speedlites third image.

The next test of our Flashgun Photography Workshop was to add some more vibrant lighting so we modified one of the flashguns / speedlites, the results were fantastic:

As usual, our tutor Ion Paciu felt the urge to get closer to the model, he loves close-up portraits, see below the result:
