On Tuesday I was so pleased to attend a training workshop, put on by Brett Harkness which was geared towards learning some more advanced flash techniques to use at weddings, but also covered a lot more. I am always constantly learning and I don't think I will ever stop!
It was great to see some familiar faces attending and also meet some new people. It all took place at the gorgeous Assembly Rooms Newcastle which has a very classical elegant style. We also went out onto the street in the sunshine to have a practice and learn from Brett.
Had a brilliant day...got lots to put into practice.. and loving the 'camera faces' I captured from some of my photographer friends. Sorry guys ;-)
Thanks to Brett and his team for a fantastic workshop.
Here are some of the images I shot on the day.
I am just so used to working with people in a non-posed way, and working with nervous people (these two were very professional models and so were very composed) that I don't even realise I am always trying to make people laugh... whoops ;-)
I'm loving the above from Kate & Michelle.... We had to walk backwards taking shots without even looking through the camera.... The four images below are what I did... without even looking through the viewfinder..hilarious. I've learnt to break the rules from time to time!
These next two images are possibly the most fashion/dramatic i've ever taken... it's definitely Brett's style!
