This is a 1 day, afternoon + evening lighting class – a practical photoshoot only modular workshop.
This class as a module is separated from the Retouching Class, so students who just want to shoot can join this class; whereas if they want to retouch, Skin HK is going to be held on 15th Sunday.
I am going to show you how I plan, design and execute a fashion/glamour photoshoot, and open your minds to what you can do, and push your creative boundaries, expand your visual references and sources out to beyond your current social circles. I am also going to show you how I interact and work with a subject, create and sustain the energy of a photoshoot.
This class is designed for the medium level user, from the technically inclined hobbyists to budding fashion photographers:
For the fresh and inexperienced, open your eyes to what you can do with light, and learn about the nuances of lighting. See how a photoshoot is born, and what you can do in order to expedite and smoothen your planning process.
For the experienced shooter (and hobbyists), I challenge you to empty your cup, and change what you think you can do with your current setup. If your photoshoot has been dictated by a particular lighting style, try doing it the other way around. Turn your lighting technique into a lighting “Sense”.
Current List of Subjects that I would like to cover:
Everything with 1
Soft and “Hard” in 1
Unconventional (and Conventional) usage and placement of common off the shelf modifiers
Develop a Sense for lighting
Applying Inverse square law by foot pacing
Knowing where light goes by eye-balling
Creative dictation of light
Expanding your Creative Horizons
Deriving multiple lighting from a single source
There are some additional stuff for the evening session:
Balancing ambient and flash
Colour Correction of Flash
Both models from the shooting sessions would be sourced from an international model agency.
Makeup and Hair would be provided.
Wardrobe sponsors/sources are welcome!

More about Richard after the jump……
Humans have been creating likenesses of each other for thousands of years, but with the introduction of photography, a new language developed for capturing the human image. Photography created opportunities for not just for biography and documentation, but also depth, empathy, and experimentation. Many portrait photographers today elevate their work from mere photo to art, communicating ideas and capturing the human subject with dignity, all while exploring the meaning and potential of portraiture.
