Portraits – working with light

Portrait photography last century example

HEDON VIEWFINDERS’ next meeting on Wednesday, July 6th will look at taking portrait photos; 1. using available light (window, sunlight and ambient light) and 2. controlling light with speedlights (flashes) and studio lights.

We’ll be setting up from 6.30pm with a start time of 7pm. At the Haven Arms, Havenside, Hedon HU12 8HH. All Welcome. You don’t have to book. Just turn up.

On Wednesday, July 13th we will be holding a ‘Show and Tell’ meeting with an opportunity for constructive criticism aimed at improving your photography. Please bring in your work (up to 5 photos) taken in the last few weeks on a memory stick on the night or email in advance to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk – and please indicate if you wish your work to be included in the anonymous constructive criticism session or not (you can opt just to show your work).
