London Wedding Photographer Training Course – March 2016
Mid March we journeyed down to London for our night and day wedding photography training course. The London wedding photography workshop is all about hands on photography and learning, shooting from mid afternoon until around midnight on day one before an afternoon of photography on day two.
During the two day training course we cover the use of flash on and off camera, daylight and video light including shooting into the sun, silhouettes and star bursts. During the flash element of the training course we also mad use of temperature gels to create different background effects with our models.
During the two day workshop we managed to photograph our bride and groom models around Westminster including a number of stunning silhouette images against the sunset. Above Overlooking the Houses of Parliament and below Sunset on West Minster Bridge.
Coloured Gels and three flash guns were used to create the above photograph.
Above: Shot with bright floodlight slooking down on us and highlighting the background, we taught a lighting control technique that can be used in any situation. Here we created a striking silhouette against the modern backdrop.
Above: With the Shard as a backdrop we were lucky to have a large puddle available to use (long story!) for this image using off camera flash. Lighting is from a single speedlight.
Making use the backdrop we created a simple silhouette complete with photographer. A simple lighting and exposure technique allowed us to turn a plain red wall into a great backdrop.
Our next London wedding photography training workshop is on May 16/17th 2016 – Full details here London Wedding Photographer Training Course
