What Will Happen

Black and White Portrait Photography meets Film Noir at this full day event based at the Crowne Plaza, Chester, this month.  It is all about using lighting, props, modifiers and costumes in a creative way,  to ensure you capture the desired effect in your camera.  You will be shooting in a Studio environment using Mains Flash as well as outside on location using Off Camera Flash

Our Models will be dressed to thrill (or should that be Kill – this is Film Noir after all!) wearing authentic costumes from the 1920’s to 1940’s – They will have  accompanying accessories to suit the plot and theme and you are guaranteed to get yourself a range of creative photographs for your portfolio.

We will be working in the following studio set-ups:

  • 1 x Continuous Light
  • 1 x Mains Studio Light 

Learning how to light, pose and work with your models to create a “Film Noir” style with the Welshot Team Leaders to guide, support and help you to make some wonderful portrait photography.
