I’m happy to announce that I now have a new gallery on my website. Consisting of a collection of portraits, photographed from an ongoing attendance to a local photography club in my area.
For just over five years now, I have been visiting a wonderful place called Studio One. Regularly attending the various club nights with a goal to understand and learn more about portrait and flash photography. This is an area that I have not had much experience in previous years. As my work had mostly consisted of landscapes, nature and occasionally motor sports. I knew back then from reviewing my work, that all my images was lacking a key ingredient and a very important one. That being people!
I have never done portraits before and did not know the best way to learn this area. It was only after a brief conversation around seven years ago, between a family member and a salesman in a telephone shop, that I became aware of Studio One. At the time I could not attend due to studying an evening course on web design and had to wait a year until the course had ended.
When I did have a chance to attend my first night, I was very nervous in myself. But from the moment I arrived, I felt instantly at ease. Due to the clubs warm, friendly and open atmosphere. As a newbie I felt instantly included within the group and learnt a lot of new skills form the seasoned photographers that had attended the previous club nights.
Studio One has been a fantastic experience and very educational. With all the club nights being different in themes and various model shoots. It has also been mixed in a variety of shooting styles and techniques, such as flash photography and the use of lighting. This has helped me grow in confidence and taught a lot of new skills over the past five years. Naturally being implemented into my photography, the experience has made me become a more versatile photographer and built my confidence to a point. Where last year I assisted in photographing a wedding for a family friend.
I can highly recommend Studio One and if you wish to find out more information please visit www.studio-one.co
