Studio Sharing Session & Model Shoot...

Not open for further replies.
Studio sharing session.

The objective of this is for me to share some basic studio concepts and lighting techniques. The main emphasis of this session is how to work with studio lights, not on teaching posing and portraiture basics.

Note: This is not a formal lesson, just a sharing session. You will walk away with a feel of what it’s like shooting in a studio and a better idea of how to get around a studio. It is recommended for those who had never step into a studio before, but with basic knowledge in shooting in manual mode.

For experience studio user, please give the rest a chance, I will be organizing another studio session with this model just for you.

Date :
12th Nov 2005
Time : 2pm - 6pm
Location : Loyang Ave or Tampines (Depending on group size)
Size : Max 8 pax (min to get the session going is 4 pax)
Cost : $80.00 per pax

A model and makeup artist will be engaged.

She will be doing a Cosplay Theme, and you will be shooting her in a new outfit.

1) A camera that has a hot-shoe and can be set to manual mode. DSLRs are recommended but not necessary.
2) Have never stepped into a studio before.... come on guys, give the newbies a chance larr.

upz for a great organizer...........

Thanks arowana & Sausage,

Yap, she is an active cosplay member, but recently I have approach her to do more of those non cosplay shoot. She is quite experience in pose, and she understand what the photographer wants very quickly... She gets into character very quickly and the shoot just get more excited as time passes with her around...

Its easier for new studio photographer to work with her as she is not that shy at close range, and she is friendly...

I will arrange for a pure shooting trip for her after this sharing workshop.

Thanks to all the participants for the Studio Sharing Session.

Hope that you all had enjoyed the session, and had learn something new.
What I had shared with you all is not the end...
There are lots more things you can do in a studio. Feel free to discuss, so we can learn from each other as well.

I will arrange with the few of you to come out for a coffee session and to review all the photos.

Francis Tan.
