The last day of March brought us to our Wedding/Speedlight course 30 mins outside of Manchester. Starting off in Bury in the morning discussing some imagery & the business side of our wedding process. We then headed off to a new venue for us, The Dunkenhalgh near Blackburn.
After lunch on arrival we started to shoot working our way around the venue inside and moving outside to shoot in some of the grounds. Using mainly 580 EX II speedlights and on occasion the Calumet Genesis GF400 flash unit. Looking at creating eye catching images of the B&G inside and out. Using different focal lengths for effect and looking at using very low power speedlights at close quarters to the subject.Looking at how to light a first dance, shooting against the daylight, using surfaces for reflection & so much more..
We have some great courses coming up soon so why not join us this yer for some amazing training & a day you wont forget!
Here are a few images from the day:
