what will happen

Tonight at the Anglesey Photographic Academy Evening Welshot will be showing you how to use JUST ONE Light and how it can help you to create and make a powerful image in your camera – We will be using both Studio Lighting and Off Camera Flash equipment. You will be learning to make and create a variety of images with very different results and looks by using three valuable techniques. Rembrandt, Butterfly and Side lighting (otherwise known as split lighting). Take these skills home with you and you will be able to use every time you shoot in a studio or OFC situation.

Our Welshot Models will be able to help you get the image you want and with all the support, guidance and help that you need, from One to One to group tuition, you will be taken through every step to help you to produce stunning photographs to be proud of.

The beauty of using just one light means it is relatively easy to do in your own home and is portable – learn these three techniques and you’ve just upped your skill level which will help you within your photography journey.

A brilliant session for the beginner and a great chance to get some images for the more advanced photographer too as there will be plenty of One on One time with the Team Leader as well as the model.
