what will happen

Tonight, at the Welshot Photographic Evening in Manchester we are really going to be putting fivefourstudios and our Models through the paces – From Mains Studio Flash to Off Camera Flash, from infinity curves and white walls to outside with a bit of urban dereliction as a backdrop. This Photographic Academy Evening is going to have it all. 

Our photo-shoot theme for tonight is “Grunge / Alternative” and you can expect to get some great shots to add to your portfolio.

If that’s not enough – we will feed and water you too, in the plush surrounding décor of the studios own bar and relaxation area, complete with Chesterfield leather sofas this makes a superb backdrop itself…  If we get lucky, we may be able to use this room for a bit of OFC too.
